This table explains where particular resources are to be found,
by reference to their "Media" value, in the sixth column ("F") of the Index.


  Resources are filed depending on the media on which they reside, not their subject matter, as far as practicable in alpha order of Reference-ID.
Maps  that are flat are all in the map-chest, others are on a wide variety of media, including some just as digital resources.  
Photos  can be any variant of book / booklet / paper, as card❋ or digital.  Photo Deposit images are indexed by community, almost always in summary.
() and (¥) in the table below are usually optional annotations: see notes at the foot of the table  
Drawers  are numbered top to bottom in the four-drawer filing-cabinet (1 to 4), then the three-drawer cabinet (5 to 7).
