The Complete American Language Reprints Series

Compiled by Claudio R. Salvucci

    The American Language Reprints series continues to grow annually. The amount of primary source material still available ensures that the series will continue to expand each year, potentially reaching hundreds of volumes as the project progresses. Now, the entirety of this vital primary source data is available in one handy reference: The Complete American Language Reprints Series on CD-Rom. Updated annually, this invaluable resource will feature printable complete texts of all current ALR volumes in PDF format. This will allow the ALR series to be considerably more flexible, affordable, and accessible to libraries and researchers in linguistics, Native American studies, and North American history.

Special Pricing

    The ALR series was originally conceived as a resource to be purchased primarily by academic and public libraries but over the years, numerous private individuals have become regular customers of the series as well. To purchase the complete ALR series in book form through volume 30 requires an investment of over $800.00. We decided to make the series available on CD-Rom so that the data is more easily available to our individual customers who generally aren't equipped with the same kinds of budgets as libraries. At just $300.00 -- $10 per volume -- The Complete American Language Reprint Series on CD-Rom represents a savings of nearly 65%. Furthermore, the versatile PDF format allows scholars to perform rapid text searches and to print out clean copies for personal use.

System Compatibility

    Assuming Adobe Acrobat Reader is installed on your computer, PDF files are generally readable by both Macintosh and PC machines. The files are created and the CDs burned using a Macintosh but our testing has revealed that the data is accessible to PCs when running recent operating systems (Windows95 or later). A few of our customers have reported problems accessing the CD using Windows XP. If you purchase the CD-Rom and have any trouble accessing the data, please let us know. We will make certain that you are provided with a replacement CD that works for your machine.

FREE ACCESS to the Interactive ALR

    As of September 1, 2006, access to most areas of the Interactive ALR is FREE. The Interactive ALR allows the user to organize, compare, and manipulate the wealth of linguistic data contained in the ALR series with a wide range of user-definable options.

Furthermore, the Interactive ALR contains additional word lists not included in the ALR series in languages such as Akansea, Sauk-Fox, Algonquin, and Catawba, and will contiue to expand separate from the book series.
