Note: this page is designed to help the users of the academic license that your
university has purchased. It assumes that the administrator for the account has
already spent a minute or so to set things up and has chosen a password for the
users from your university. This page discusses what you need to do as a user of
the corpus to have access to the group account, and you only need to do this
1. Log in with your individual
email and password. Even though you will be using the "group account", there
still needs to be a way to track who has done individual queries, so that you
can link to and re-do past queries (using "history", after logging in). After
logging in with your individual account, you will see something similar to the
following in the "Overview" tab (the rightmost tab in the corpus interface).
(Note that you can also access that page at any point by clicking on the
"person" icon in the upper right-hand corner of the corpus interface.)
2. Enter the organization name,
exactly as the administrator has specified it when s/he set up the account.
It has to be exactly the same. So if the administrator chose
then Utopia University
and Utopia Univ.
(note the full stop at the end) would not work. It would have to be
Utopia Univ . Then click
"Update" and you will see  the password field.
3. Enter the group password
and click "Join group".
Contact the administrator for the license if you don't know what it is.
Again, it has to be exactly the same -- even case sensitivity (e.g.
ourPassword vs OurPassword vs ourpassword).
Once you have done steps #2 and 3, you will then be using the
academic license. You can make sure that you really are using the license,
because you will see the following message after logging in:
If you see the message below, you are not using the site license and you need to
do steps 2 and 3 again:
Because you are using the academic license, this means that you won't be blocked by the normal limits (250 queries per day
per university) and you won't see the messages that would otherwise appear every 10-15 queries
(which ask you to contribute to the corpora).
But again, your individual queries will be stored under your own account, so that
can re-use and share them with others. And again, you only need to do #2 and 3
