Hebrew mss of Ben Sira

These manuscripts are a substantial chunk of the source texts for the Dictionary of Classic Hebrew, but I haven't found a Logos resource or tool that gives me any kind of access to them. One option might be to incorporate them into one of the Manuscript Explorers (even though they aren't part of the "Hebrew Bible" or the Septuagint per se).  The website www.bensira.org is a wonderful repository of images and transcriptions from all the holding institutions of the fragments from the Cairo Genizah, Qumran and Masada, with a verse-by-verse index and thorough bibliographies.  It could be a good starting point for adding these mss to an Explorer.
