Browse by collection. Collections are whole sets of resources (organized into folders) created by a particular researcher or project. Click on the Collections tab in the top menu to produce a list of all the Collections in AILLA. Click on one of the collections to see a summary of that collection, followed by a list of all of the resources it contains.

Browse by language. Click on the Languages tab in the top menu to produce a list of all the Languages in AILLA. This list will include some languages (like French) that appear in media files but that are neither indigenous nor Latin American languages. If you don't see the name of the language you are interested in, you might try searching (using the search bar) for an alternative name or spelling. Many alternative names can be found in the Ethnologue. It is also possible that the archive simply does not have any resources for that language. There are hundreds of languages in Latin America, not all of which have been documented, and not all documentation has been archived.

Browse by country. Click on the Countries tab in the top menu to produce a list of all the countries in which AILLA's resources were produced. Note that a resource about a language of Peru may have been produced in the United Kingdom.
