Guidelines and abbreviations
The archives are made up of 12 collections, each one of which represents a unity in terms of the origins of its documents.
Throughout the catalogue, the archive documents are identified in five ways. First of all, and where applicable, the different files in each collection are identified. Secondly, for those researchers who want to consult the archives in their original, 'paper', form at the Centre Æquatoria in Bamany, the boxes in which the documents are stored are identified. For the same purpose, we provide the page numbers of the documents, which were applied to parts of the archives after their collection (and which thus do not represent any original page numbering of the documents). Thirdly, the microfilms on which the documents appear are indicated. Finally, and probably the most important one for users, is the code of the microfiche on which the documents appear. Underlined film or fiche codes, or such codes put between parantheses, indicate corrections or additions: after the first microfilming, new documents had to be filmed and a number of bad microfiches had to be redone.
Microfiche codes are always in bold face, and they are the only codes to be written this way. The microfiche codes are the important reference if you want to order a copy of an archive document.
If no microfiche code appears next to an archive document, this means that this archive document is on the same microfiche as the previous document or as the last document for which a microfiche code was indicated.
