Electronic Göttingen LXX On Sale

This sale is quite a deal. On Friday, 2/8/13, International Septuagint Day, Logos's electronic Göttingen LXX will be available for $369. Use the coupon code LXXDay2013 at checkout. Every published volume is included. Even if you do not have a Logos base package, this is the sort of resource that would be worth purchasing as a stand alone product. Abram has the scoop. See his blog for a very nice review of the electronic version of the Göttingen LXX  in Logos and Accordance. My Göttingen Logos Layout

Here is a screen shot illustrating how the Göttingen text and apparatuses can be displayed alongside BHS (click the images to zoom in):

In this layout, the Göttingen text is linked to both the apparatuses and the BHS text (notice the little orange and white "A" in the top left corner of each window). If I type in a verse reference (e.g. Gen 1:1) and hit enter, each window automatically jumps to that passage, even if it is in different Göttingen volume. For example in the screen shot above, I am in Isaiah 1:1. When I type in Genesis 1:1 and hit enter, this is what I see:

The Göttingen text and apparatuses immediately moved from Ziegler's Isaiah volume to Wevers' Genesis volume.  This is one of the many advantages of the electronic edition--seamless navigation through the entire series.
