The answer is yes. Here are two review articles which might help:

Hoogenboom HR & Winter G. (1992) By-passing immunisation. Human
antibodies from synthetic repertoires of germline VH gene segments 
rearranged in vitro.  J Mol Biol  227:381-388.

Winter G, Griffiths AD, Hawkins RE & Hoogenboom HR. (1994) Making 
antibodies by phage display technology.  Annu Rev Immunol  12:433-455.
