Several BYU professors and FARMS staff and board members recently returned from a successful conference in Jerusalem. On April 30, BYU and FARMS cosponsored the Judaean Desert Scrolls Conference at the BYU Jerusalem Center for Near Eastern Studies. The primary purpose of the conference was to present the first working version of the Dead Sea Scrolls Electronic Database, the latest technology using computer images and text search features to aid research on the Dead Sea Scrolls (described in recent issues of Insights).
