How do I obtain a copy of the corpus?Follow the instructions on the registration page.
If multiple individuals in the same institution want to use the corpus, does each person need to have a license?If the head of a laboratory (e.g., director, PI, faculty member) completes the license agreement, then all members of that lab can use the corpus. Each lab must have its own license. Department-wide or institution-wide licenses are not allowed. See also Can I place the corpus on a server so that others can easily access it?
Can I use the corpus in classes that I teach?Yes. We encourage its use in teaching. The faculty member teaching the course must complete the license agreement. If the course is being taught by a graduate student or other type of instructor, then the faculty person in charge of the course must complete the license agreement.

Can I place the corpus on a server so that others can easily access it?If the corpus is placed on a server, then access must be password protected so that only members of the lab or class can access the corpus. Under no circumstances must it be accessible by a larger group of individuals, such as all members of a department, institution, or the general public. If restricted access cannot be provided or guaranteed, then the corpus should not be placed on a server.
How should the corpus be cited?The corpus should be cited as follows:
