Funny thing. The copyright isn't an issue--DLI material is actually "restricted material" in the government's view, so distribution of it violates rules other than copyright rules.


Many if not most of the DLI courses have been released as PDFs on the US Government's ERIC (Educational Resources Information Center) site, including military vocabulary documents. I don't believe any "National Security" restrictions apply.

Some of the documents may include third-party copyrighted material. The Mandarin course comes to mind.

Apparently we cannot download PDFs anymore from ERIC.

ERIC reports that it's temporarily blocking access to the PDFs because of a privacy concern (maybe some author realized that ERIC was releasing a .pdf that more revealing than he/she thought?), and I sure hope that it doesn't become permanent.

It looks as if ERIC is going to start making their PDFs available again soon, and that if you want a particular document, you can request it via e-mail. Here's the message that now appears on their homepage:
------------------------------------------------------------ ------------
Dear ERIC Community,

In early August we discovered that sensitive personally identifiable information appeared in some full text documents contained in the ERIC collection. Specifically, social security numbers and other highly sensitive information were found in multiple documents and in a way that could not easily be isolated. For that reason, we had to temporarily disable access to many full text documents.

Although these documents had been publicly available in microfiche for many years, the advent of Internet search engines has made it easier to find this information. Our number one concern is to ensure that any full-text documents we provide do not violate any individual's privacy. We believe that if any of us were to have our privacy compromised by an ERIC document, we would want the same consideration.

We are seeking to restore access to documents as soon as possible. In order to restore access to ERIC, we have to check every document to see if it contains personally identifiable information. Due to the quality of many of the documents, a large portion of the search has to be done by hand. This is a large undertaking and we are in the process of hiring a team to help restore access in a fast and responsive manner. We hope to get this team in place by late September and releasing large numbers of ERIC documents by the end of October. We will continue to release documents after that point on a rolling basis.

To minimize the burden on our users, we will prioritize searching the documents that users request. If you would like to request a PDF to be returned online, please email ERICRequests@ed.gov with the record number (such as ED263102). Documents will be returned on a rolling basis and may take several weeks, but we are working as fast as possible.

We are sorry for the inconvenience and want to thank you for bearing with us through this unexpected delay.

The ERIC Team

Hi! Could you share, by any chance, the Georgian audiofile you mention? I've got the SF
200 hours Georgian PDF file, and it looks like it's a good course, so I'd be grateful
for the audio to it. I can't google it up anywhere.


I would also be very interested in the pdf and audio for the Georgian course.

Many thanks.

Surely some of us have already downloaded some of these programs before ERIC shut them down (why do they think that language programs would have PII in them?...)

Does anyone have the Persian DLI courses downloaded already who'd be willing to send them to me? Thanks
