orion BIBLIOGRAPHY SEARCH SERVICE
BIBLIOGRAPHY SEARCH SERVICE
The Orion Center for the Study of the Dead Sea Scrolls, as part of its
ongoing Complete On-Line DSS Bibliography Project, will be offering a
bibliography search service. We currently have 1259 entries on DSS and
close to 5000 in the areas of Second Temple Judaism and Early
Christianity. Among the DSS entries, priority is given to works published
after 1995, as we will eventually publish the full bibliography, starting
where F. Garcia Martinez and D.W. Parry's _A Bibliography of the Finds
in the Deset of Judah 1970-95_ ends.
This service will be offered, on a trial basis, for the month of FEBRUARY
ONLY. This will enable us to see whether there is sufficient interest
and whether our staff can handle queries. Initially, the service
will be free. After February, we will decide whether this will be on
barter/subscription basis or whether to discontinue it.
Searches may be requested on the basis of key-words, DSS manuscripts,
authors, dates, etc. If you are requesting a key-word search, we suggest
that you consider your choices carefully, so that your search is not too
broad or too narrow.
Responses will be given via e-mail, using text file attachments. If your
mailer does not read attachments, then we may put it in the body of the text
if it is not too long a document. The format will be .txt and the citation
format will be Chicago Manual of Style. Accuracy cannot be guaranteed, as we
are only human, but we will do our best. The 2nd Temple/Early Christianity
references have been culled from several scholars at the Hebrew University
and have not been verified, except to weed out duplicates and obvious errors.
This service differs from our web site bibliography in some respects. Our
web site bibliography is devoted to current bibliography, and so does
not have many older works posted. This service will offer far more search
options than our current web site allows (i.e., searches on 4QFlor,
pesher, works pre-dating 1995).
We encourage and welcome additions to our bibliography, especially anything
written after 1995. New additions will also be added to our on-line
bibliography on our web site, http://orion.mscc.huji.ac.il. Please send
any entries to email@example.com, with "bibliography" in the subject
