It, would be nice to have the digtial images of the Leningrad Codex Facsimile Edition (David Noel Freedman). When the Codex was first annouced back in 1998 the WSRP (West Semitic Research project) stated that digital images weren't available because of the publication of the facsimile, but as it now appears to be out of print (see here) I wonder if those at the WSRP would be willing to consider allowing Accordance to aquire digital images of the Leningrad Codex for inclusion in a new module?
For those wondering why one might request images of the Leningrad Codex here are a few reasons:
(1) The Leningrad Codex is currently the oldest 'complete' manuscript of the Hebrew Bible
(2) The BHS (& the not yet finnished BHQ) are diplomatic transcriptions of the Leningrad Codex
(3) Many (if not most) of Accordance's Hebrew Bible databases are based on the Leningrad Codex
(4) Many translations of the Hebrew Bible use the Leningrad Codex as their base and departure by way of the BHS/BHQ
(5) "Accordance would be the first/only(to my knowledge) software to integrate images of this codex" Abram K-J (5/12/2014)
(6) A digital edition would be a lot lighter, and far more convenient to carry around than the physical facsimile. Anywhere, one could take a notebook (PC / Mac) or a tablet computer with Accordance one would be able to access the codex.
