The shelf marks of manuscripts are notoriously idiosyncratic, though important since they are often used in scholarly literature. Popular names are also used, so it can be necessary to verify that a popular name and a shelf mark stand for the same work, especially when using multiple sources. Unfortunately there was little recourse for the beginning researcher to resolve this simple but potentially vexing problem until the publication of this text. This handbook can also be used to learn the location of manuscripts at the time of publication.
