You have asked to obtain a copy of text materials containing about 5 million words of newspaper extracts from Le Monde, consisting of articles from September and October 1989, and January 1990.
In order to obtain this material, we request that you sign and date this agreement (preceded by the handwritten phrase ``Read and agreed"), and return it (retaining a copy) to the ECI, who will in turn forward it to the original distributor of the material, limsi-cnrs, who will maintain it on file and forward a copy to Le Monde.
Our goal is to make this text material freely available for research purposes, without financial compensation except for cost of duplication.
