The ABMC provides on-site access to
its film and digital holdings for
qualified scholars, which is defined
as any person with sufficient knowledge
of the relevant languages.
Dead Sea Scroll
These images are not available through
ILL and are strictly for research
purposes. They are not to be published
or duplicated in any way by the recipient
without the express permission of
the owner of the copyrights to that
image. These images are most commonly
provided to the individual through
electronic means (on CD or via email).
Occasionally, a request will be filled
for a transparency or a photographic
print of the image. The costs for
duplication of images electronically
or photographically are $25 for the
first image and for every image thereafter
if photomanipulation (color balance,
etc.) of the original negative is
necessary, and $20 for each image
thereafter if no addictional photomanipulation
is necessary. For example, some of
the original John C. Trever photos
of the Dead Sea Scrolls have faded
or deteriorated and require adjustment
prior to publication or feasible research.
For Dead Sea Scrolls images, PAM
numbers or Shrine numbers are required.
If these are unavailable, please contact
the research associate for scholarly
services for assistance.

are new acquisitions being made all
