The full corpus, as FIN-CLARIN has it, is organized in eleven branches named arc01, ..., arc11. Each document is stored as a zip archive containing scanned image files in different resolutions, and the OCR results as XML documents. This distribution has the same structure but contains only the OCR results.

Each of the distribution files, ..., contains the material extracted from one branch of the full corpus; arc10 is currently missing from this distribution for technical reasons; and arc11 did not contain any relevant material.

The distribution file "" contains all 10 branches in one archive.
