University of Texas' Gutenberg Bible Goes Online

The University of Texas has put its entire two-volume Gutenberg Bible on the Internet. While the edition of the Gutenberg Bible at the Harry Ransom Center of the University of Texas is not the first to go digital -- Gutenberg Bibles in England and Japan have been posted on the internet, and the Library of Congress has an edition on CD-ROM -- officials at the Ransom Center believe that their copy is the best one available. "Our copy is the most interesting in the world," said Richard Oram, head librarian at the Ransom Center.
