This corpus of French texts was an important resource not only for lexicographers, but also for many other types of humanists and social scientists engaged in French studies - on both sides of the Atlantic. The result of this realization was American and French Research on the Treasury of the French Language (ARTFL) -- a cooperative project established in 1981 by the Centre National de la Recherche Scientifique and the University of Chicago.

The ARTFL project has focused on three objectives over its long history:

* to include a variety of texts so as to make the database as versatile as possible;
* to create a system that would be easily accessible to the research community;
* to provide researchers with an easy-to-use but effective tool.

In most cases standard scholarly editions were used in converting the text into machine-readable form, and the data contain page references to these editions. The FRANTEXT corpus is updated as new high-quality digital texts become available.
