Biblical Archaeology Review 24:4, July/August 1998

First Person: We’re on the Web!

Happiness is just a click away

By Steven Feldman

For many months now readers have been asking us, “Are you on the Web yet?” or “Do you have a home page?” Sheepishly, we’ve had to reply, “Not yet, but we’re working on it.” At last we can proudly say, “Yes, as a matter of fact, we are on the Web!”

Thanks to the talents of many people on our staff (and some dedicated outsiders!), we can unveil the Biblical Archaeology Society Web site. Visit our home page—er, excuse me, point your browser to (as we say in cyber-lingo):

As soon as you get there, “bookmark” it so you can return to it frequently and easily.

Here’s a little taste of what you’ll find: Excerpts from our latest issue, and from the current issues of our sister publications, Bible Review and Archaeology Odyssey. Updated news stories—items that just missed making it into the latest issue and previews of items going into the next issue. Information on upcoming Travel/Study programs (sign up now for an exciting trip to Oxford or one of our other tours). Marketplace—one-stop-shopping for videos, slide sets, books and back issues. Information on joining an archaeological dig this year (time is running out fast!) and links to related Web sites. Plus you’ll be able to contact our subscription service directly to straighten out any problems (heavens forfend) you might have.
