There are available printed manuals for the LOB Corpus (the original manual and a supplementary manual for the tagged version). Printed manuals for the Brown Corpus cannot be obtained from Bergen. Some information on the London-Lund Corpus is distributed together with copies of the text and the KWIC concordance for the corpus. Users of the London-Lund material are also recommended to consult J. Svartvik (ed.). The London-Lund Corpus: Description and Research, Lund University Press, 1990.

Use of ICAME texts within an institution
Though ICAME texts cannot be used and distributed outside the institution making the order, they can be freely used within the institution (department, faculty, university) for the purposes of research and teaching. To prevent any use of the material for commercial and profit-making purposes, it is advisable to limit access to registered computer users within the institution. The way this is done may vary depending upon the institution making the order.
