This paper describes how Charles Darwin University Library is directly helping to sustain and preserve Aboriginal languages and culture that have been facing hurdles for long-term survival. The Library, in partnership with an ARC-funded research project known as the Living Archive of Aboriginal Languages (www.cdu.edu.au/laal), supports this effort with a repository, web application and digitisation program to preserve endangered Indigenous resources and facilitate both Indigenous community engagement and international linguistic research. The project serves as a rich case study demonstrating how academic libraries can work with researchers to support the archiving of cultural heritage.
