How do I get free access?
The Dictionary of Old English Online and the DOE Web Corpus are now freely available to the general public. Each user will get 20 free logins every year.
Make sure you don’t have anything in your shopping cart.
For existing users: Please go to the Dictionary of Old English store. Click on “Login” and login with your username and password. You may now use your username and password to access the DOE or the Web Corpus 20 times each, i.e. for 20 logins.
For new users: Please go to the Dictionary of Old English store. Click on “Login”, then click on “New Customer”. Fill in the information form and click on “Save” in order to set up a username and password. You may now use your username and password to access the DOE or the Web Corpus 20 times each, i.e. for 20 logins.
Once you have exhausted your free logins, you will receive an automated invoice. You can pay the invoice to get unlimited access to the DOE resources for a year, or you can wait for a year and we will grant you another 20 free logins.
What is counted as one access?
Each time you enter your username and password it is counted as one access.
- Once you log in, there is no time limit as long as your session stay active
- You can refresh your browser, or even close it and open it again. Within 3 hours of login, you won’t be asked to login again.
You will be asked for a username and password
- when the DOEonline page has been idle or your browser has been closed longer than 3 hours.
- when you erase the cookie named doe_sid for tapor.library.utoronto.ca.
When will my access counter be reset?
- When your paid subscription expires, your free access counter will set to 0 and start counting.
- A year after your 20th login, your counter will set to 0 and start counting from your first login.
Can institutions get 20 free logins?
No, but information on trial access is available upon request.
