Founded in 1996, the Journal of Hebrew Scriptures (JHS) is an electronic peer-reviewed periodical (ISSN: 1203-1542) distributed by the University of Alberta. Its primary focus is on linguistic and literary issues and discoveries that have arisen through the study of the Hebrew Bible and other related texts. An abstract accompanies each article, and the full text can be read via one's browser or as a PDF file. Articles from earlier volumes can also be downloaded as Microsoft Word files. In addition to academic articles, the journal publishes a number of book reviews each year. Some articles require a Unicode Hebrew font: links to sites from which one can be downloaded are provided.
The Bibliothèque Nationale de France makes available online scanned versions of a large number of catalogues for its collection of manuscripts from around the world. The website gives access to all these catalogues, but by clicking on the Manuscrits - Orient option the user is taken directly to a list of manuscript catalogues for the Near East and Africa. These include catalogues for manuscripts in Arabic (11 catalogues); Hebrew (one catalogue); Persian (four catalogues); and Turkish (two catalogues); as well as catalogues for manuscripts in other Near Eastern languages like Armenian and Syriac. The digitisation process is ongoing, and further catalogues will be added in the future. Although the catalogues are scanned as images and therefore not easily searchable, this resource makes available to researchers important catalogues for the library's significant collections of manuscripts for Middle Eastern, Jewish and Islamic Studies.
