The Israeli Antiquities Authority (IAA) revamped their Leon Levy Dead Sea Scrolls Digital Library Tuesday. 
The IAA launched the library in 2012 as a means of providing an index of the scrolls, as well as analysis and commentary, to any interested researcher or historian. The site has been wildly successful; over half a million people worldwide have visited the site and 25,000 new users enter the site every month.
Updates include over 10,000 new high-quality photographs of the scrolls, content pages in Russian and German, easy access to the site from social media, and a better search engine.
