This paper describes experiments done on the VLC2 collection at TREC-7. Methods used for indexing text is described together with the results: this includes the official collections BASE1, plus some larger unofficial collections named BASE2 and BASE4. Search times on these collections are described and discussed with a particular emphasis on scaleup: for both weighted term search and passage retrieval. The various configurations for experiments are described.
