Item description for The Dead Sea Scrolls Electronic Reference Library, Vol. 1 (Dss Electronic Reference Library , Vol 1) by Philip S. Alexander & Timothy H. Lim...
The Dead Sea Scrolls probably represent the most significant historical manuscript discovery in recent history. In 1993 E.J. Brill published all available DSS photographs on microfilm together with an extensive guide to them. But because microfilm offers less than optimal access, all film has now been transferred onto CD-ROM which mean that the latest digital computer technology is making such tasks as cross referencing, interpretation and comparisons much easier and faster than ever before. The Dead Sea Scrolls Electronic Reference Library project takes the form of an ongoing archive. E.J. Brill and Oxford University Press, granted exclusive rights by the Israeli Antiquities Authority to produce this CD-ROM edition of the Dead Sea Scrolls, will publish new volumes in the series on a regular basis. Volume 1, a 3 CD-ROM package due in January 1997, comprises over 3,500 black and white images and detailed support information. Success in scholarship today is increasingly a function of the speed and convenience of source access and interpretation. The rich material detail combined with the unprecedented manipulative capabilities of the computer mean the DSS Electronic Reference Library leaves all alternatives far in its wake.
