Data access conditions Open (subject to agreeing to PDSC access conditions)
Data access details Moral ownership of the material resides with individual speakers for each audio and other text, and with the Torau community.

Speakers recorded or interviewed by Palmer each signed a form giving permission for the material to be made public. The heirs of deceased speakers in old recordings gave verbal permission for the recordings to be made available to the public. The attitude of the Torau community in general appears to welcome publication of the deposited materials.

There are no special conditions attached to the deposited material.
