Lexicons of Early Modern English (LEME) at leme.library.utoronto.ca
now offers open public searching of 500,000 word-entries in over 150
lexical works, printed and manuscript, from 1480 to 1702.

LEME was launched by the University of Toronto Press and the
University of Toronto Library on September 19, 2006. It has been
generously supported by the Social Sciences and Humanities Research
Council of Canada (SSHRC), the Canada Foundation for Innovation (CFI),
and the Ontario Innovation Trust (OIT) through Geoffrey Rockwell's
TAPoR portal at McMaster University.

Although basic LEME searching is open to the public, free sessions are
limited in numbers of queries, and of results, per session. Editorial
apparatus, word-lists, lexicon indexes, page-displays, EEBO links, and
advanced, unlimited searches may be licensed. Institutional and
personal licenses may be obtained for fees shown on the LEME site.
These support the maintenance and expansion of the LEME database,
which is a global, not-for-profit scholarly service.

To set up a personal trial subscription, please contact Anne Marie
Corrigan at acorrigan_at_utpress.utoronto.ca. If others at your
institution would be interested in accessing LEME, ask your librarian
to contact her to set up a trial for your institution.

LEME replaces the Early Modern English Dictionaries Database (EMEDD; 1996-).
