Wondering if Accordance is adding to the volumes available on JBL (Journal of Biblical Literature)? Especially wondering if they will be going backwards, to include prior to 1981? Thanks!

Hmm...any updates on this? And will the volumes past 2006 also be included someday, as part of the an upgrade?

 

Thanks.

We will be adding new volumes, but it is unlikely that we will add older volumes unless suitable electronic texts can be provided by the publisher.

 

Thanks for the feedback.

Yes, the technical issues with older volumes can indeed be a bottleneck, but it's good to know that the later volumes can be added sometime in the future. Now that's something to look forward to...

 

Thanks.

Rick,

Regarding "suitable electronic texts from the publisher:" is this hurdle equally high for all of the years prior to 1981? Even an addition of 10 years on the back end of the archive would be a valuable upgrade. Is it feasible to do it piecemeal?

Thanks!
