- Bryn Mawr Classical Review
The BMCR archives comprise several hundred `article' files, each with a serial number file name of less than eight characters, consisting of numerals and hyphens. Each designates the volume, issue, and number of the contents: so 3-4-6 is the sixth item in the fourth issue of volume 3. (Vol. 1, 1990; vol. 2, 1991; vol. 3, 1992.) The individual article files are organized in `volume' directories, so for example, 3-4-6 and all other Vol. 1 articles are in v3. In addition the file INDEX contains a current list of all files in serial number order, identifying author and title of book reviewed and author of review.
