This chapter presents an overview of some of the recent language and linguistics projects which have been developed at the University of Glasgow, and focuses in particular on the ways in which these projects have engaged with a wide community of users at different stages of resource creation and completion. The main projects discussed are the Scottish Corpus of Texts & Speech, its sister resource, the Corpus of Modern Scottish Writing, Scots Words and Place-names, and Mapping Metaphor with the Historical Thesaurus. We draw out a number of themes which emerged in the creation and exploitation of these resources and others like them. These include: establishing and maintaining contact with users, supporting users in resource exploitation, including through metadata provision, and sustaining resources.
