We receive many questions about the availability of page numbers in our tools. We have compiled here some recent answers in hopes that these will satisfy many users. Thanks to Rick Bennett not only for his answers below but for managing the development projects and adding the numbers to many of our older tools.

 

All new releases of reference titles* will come with page numbers added, unless in rare cases where we add them after release to get it out to users faster.

*we often do not add pages to titles where the source edition is not easily determined. We also do not typically add them for study bibles.

 

Each product page on the website has a screenshot which you can see at full-size with a click, and check if there are page numbers to the top left of the pane displaying the contents. It's not infallible as we may have added page numbers and not updated the shot, but we try to keep them up to date.

 

Did you mean that page numbers will eventually be added to every Accordance module that comes in collection as well?

 

We started systematically adding pages to modules that did not have them approx. 5 years ago. We started with all the obvious commentaries, dictionaries, and resources that would most likely be cited by page number. In the last couple years we have made it our standard practice to add them to all new releases where the source of the e-text matches directly to what we developed. Some slight exceptions are like Study Bibles where they are rarely cited by page number (since the format of the Bible containing the study notes can vary greatly; i.e. hardback, leather, compact; different translations, etc.); or public domain resources where the source of the e-text is unknown, or has been made into many different reprint editions that vary.

 

We also discovered recently that some resources we added them to never got released (chiefly being several in the IVP Reference Collection). So we decided to have someone go through every single module to determine which ones have pages, and which ones do not, and prioritize those which should have them added (keep in mind this is like 1,000 modules [not titles] stretching back almost 20 years). We are now working on adding them.

 

So, to answer your question: will every module in our collections be getting pages? No, not all, but some of them will (see examples of exceptions above). If you have a specific question on one, email customer service (after checking the screen shot on the product page). And if it helps, here are some we're working on now: IVP Dictionaries (any in the reference collections that did not have them), Eerdmans Dictionary. Known modules that do not have them and will likely not get them any time soon (or at all) Classic EBC, Church Fathers (we hope to, but it's massive).
