You can choose between one of the Public Collections (including the LSE Web collection) or one of ``My Collections.''
The LSE Web Collection (public collection `lseweb') is a corpus of about 3.5 million sentences chosen at random from Internet Archive crawls. This is the default source for English searches. There is also a much smaller Chinese Web collection (public collection `chinese_web') of about 100,000 sentences of parallel Chinese/English text, also gathered from the Internet Archive. This collection is searchable in both English and Chinese and is the default collection for Chinese.
My Collections is the set of collections you have created using AltaVista searches (see 4). If you search My Collections, you must choose the particular collection to search on the main query page with the Choose Collection selection box. If you have not created any collections, only the LSE Web Collection and any Public Collections will be available to you.
Public Collections besides the LSE Web collection are similar to My Collections in that they are a narrower set of material, but are available to all users instead of just one user.
Currently available Public Collections include `bible,' which is a parsed version of the World English Bible linked to dozens of other translations in English and many other languages. To view the other translations, perform a search, then select the `Annotations' link from a result. You can choose which translations to see for Bible searches by following the `Select Translations' link on the annotations page.
Once you have chosen a source, that will be the default for future queries until it is changed again.
