Abstract An impetus to preserve thousands of books produced in Aboriginal languages during the years of bilingual education in the Northern Territory has led to the development of the Living Archive of Aboriginal Languages (www.cdu.edu.au/laal). The challenge has been to squeeze a complex range of materials into specific categories which meet the standards of a Western-style archive while also respecting the Indigenous creators and knowledges represented therein. This paper considers some of the technical, social and political issues that are thereby raised in bringing the archive to life, and the compromises that have been required.
