ARCHER: A Representative Corpus of Historical English Registers

Documentation

  • User Agreement (MS Word DOCX, 37 KB) or User Agreement (PDF, 88 KB) (Apr 2014)
    • The Agreement must be printed out, and Part 2 (for an individual) or Part 3 (an instructor on behalf of a class) must be signed and scanned.
    • For online use, create an account on the Lancaster CQPweb server (unless you have one already). This applies both to individual researchers and students in a class.
    • Please then go to the Select Survey, where there is a simple online form to fill in for ARCHER and a button for uploading the scanned page. Individual users will need their CQPweb username. (NB. Students in a class do not need to fill in the online ARCHER form at SelectSurvey or upload anything.)
    • Instructors of classes should send a list of their students’ CQPweb usernames by email to archer@manchester.ac.uk. In order to use ARCHER themselves they should include their own username in the student list, or submit our online form again as an individual user.
