    Cybraries in paradise: New technologies and ethnographic repositories
    Barwick, L ; Thieberger, N ; Kapitzke, C ; Bruce, BC (Routledge, 2013-01-01)
    Digital technologies have altered research practices surrounding creation and use of ethnographic field recordings, and the methodologies and paradigms of the disciplines centered around their interpretation. In this chapter we discuss some examples of our current research practices as fieldworkers documenting music and language in the Asia-Pacific region in active engagement with the cultural heritage communities, and as developers and curators of the digital repository PARADISEC (the Pacific and Regional Archive for Digital Sources in Endangered Cultures: ). We suggest a number of benefits that the use of digital technologies can bring to the recording of material from small and endangered cultures, and to its re-use by communities and researchers.
