This paper presents the procedures that have been adopted for the digitization, annotation, archiving and dissemination of a corpus of the NURC - Norma Linguística Urbana Culta [Cultured Linguistic Urban Norm] Project, an academic project that assembled one of the most influential speech corpora for linguistics research in Brazil. The goal here is to make public a protocol that was created based on the above-mentioned procedures, and to promote it as best practices to be adopted for digitizing linguistic data that were recorded in analog format, in general, and, in particular, for the digitization of the NURC Project data; and for the annotation, archiving and dissemination of linguistic data in digital format.
