|Conservation:||Most published papyri are kept between glass; some recent additions are put between perspex. The unpublished papyri are kept between paper folders.|
|Inventarisation:||There is a full inventory in the Library of all texts (on paper cards) and a shorter list on A4 paper. The glass plates are numbered in series according to their size; the paper folders are in different series : Pap. Gr., Pap. FF and Pap. Demotic (some are kept in Select Boxes, but this does not form part of their numbering system).|
