Society of Biblical Literature: Texts and Resources

Not Open Access, but worthy of note. SBL Members have access after signing in:

Society of Biblical Literature: Texts and Resources
Biblical scholars are fundamentally indebted to the work of text-critics. Texts and resources for this work are available to SBL members on this page, and SBL is grateful to the partnership with the German Bible Society that makes these available. 

Textual Resources from the German Bible Society
  

The decades-long commitment of the German Bible Society has produced the staples that have nourished generations of biblical scholars and translators. The booklet Textual Research on the Bible highlights this work. Through a partnership with the German Bible Society, the reading texts (upper texts, without critical apparatus) of four editions are available to SBL members in several formats for download and personal use.

Textual Resources from the Society of Biblical Literature:

The Greek New Testament: SBL Edition, edited by Michael W. Holmes (SBLGNT)*
SBL in association with Logos Bible Software offers a new, critically edited Greek New Testament in electronic and print formats. See more information on the relationship between the SBLGNT and the UBS and Nestle-Aland texts below.

The text of the SBLGNT has been encoded in a Unicode-compliant font so users can exchange files easily without having to secure a special Greek font. Users may use SBLGreek or any other Unicode font that supports the full range of Greek characters. 


SBL Fonts 
SBL has collaborated with many organizations and individuals to develop a series of high-quality fonts for digital and print use. This series includes SBL BibLit, which combines Greek, Hebrew, and Latin characters, including transliteration diacritics, SBL Greek, a Greek-specific font, and SBL Hebrew, a Hebrew-specific font. These fonts, an FAQ page, font support contact, and a user agreement for commercial use are available here.
