COVID-19 Update: Although access to Gould Library remains closed, library staff will continue our commitment to support the teaching and research needs of the Carleton community during the COVID-19 pandemic. Due to the Governor’s stay at home order, the library has moved to a virtual services model from March 28 through April 10, 2020. Our extensive collection of digital materials remains available, and the majority of library services are accessible remotely. Information on library resources and services will be updated regularly on the Spring 2020: Remote Resources and Guidance for Library Users page. Please do not hesitate to contact us if you need assistance accessing resources and services.


Linguistic Corpora

Every year there are more and more freely available corpora available. Here are some of the big ones. If you don't see something here that fits your needs, please talk to your professor or to Iris Jastram.

Large Text Collections

Here are the collections most commonly used on campus for document corpora. Talk to Iris about methods of developing the corpus you need.

There's more

The library has several large text collections available "behind the scenes." Sometimes when we purchase online collections, the vendors send us hard drives of the text for storage and analysis. If you have a particular text collection in mind to study, contact Iris Jastram to talk about availability and options.
