U. of New Mexico University Library Launches Project to Preserve Zuni Language
From The Daily Lobo:
The University of New Mexico’s College of University Libraries project is working to preserve the Zuni language and culture by using modern digital technology.
The Zuni Language Materials Collection (ZLMC)is comprised of materials donated by the Zuni Public School District to UNM in 2016. According to their website it is a digitized platform used to support Zuni language learners in the community, Zuni Pueblo and schools, as well as the UNM community.\\
Arin Peywa is a member of the Zuni Pueblo and a UNM secondary education and English major. She was hired by the library and funded by the Zuni: Engaging Teachers and Community Program (ZETAC). This program provided funding to have the language materials scanned and digitized, Peywa said.
The ZLMC is housed under the UNM Libraries New Mexico Digital Collections, which uses the metadata that Peywa has created to act as a search portal for digital collections about New Mexico.
