LingSync ( is a suite of open-source  tools for collaborative linguistic fieldwork and language documentation. The software allows teams of users to easily build language fieldwork databases together and gives them fine-grained control over who has access to the data; salient features include import/export, automatic glossing, and cross-platform usability. The workshop will motivate and describe the software, provide a practical demonstration of how to use it, and will end with a tutorial where participants may practice entering data and using the tool, with guidance and assistance from one of the developers.
