The Endangered Languages Catalogue (ELCat) Project, conceived and spearheaded by our own Dr. Lyle Campbell, is the core resource within the Endangered Languages Project, a joint venture of Google, the Alliance for Linguistic Diversity, UH Mānoa Linguistics Department, and the LINGUIST List (Eastern Michigan University).

The Language Documentation Training Center is an organization run entirely by graduate students in the UH Mānoa Linguistics Department whose main goal is to introduce basic concepts in language documentation to speakers of underdocumented languages, so that they will be able to participate in the documentation of their own languages.

The Department hosts the biannual Conference on Language Documentation and Conservation (ICLDC).

The Department publishes the journals Language Documentation and Conservation and Oceanic Linguistics.
