A quick question for the Accordance gurus, when Yale took over the Anchor bible, did the page numbering change?
In the previous Anchor Bible, each of the volumes were numbered individually, not consecutively. So a citation of anchor would be something like John Doe, "King David", 3:99.

The Accordance module of the Anchor Yale numbers the pages consecutively and I'm wondering if this is reflecting a new convention by Yale, or if it is an Accordance thing.

Danny,

The page numbers do actually go by volume, and the volume is indicated in the actual text of Anchor at the beginning of each major article. Page numbers were not included in the initial e-text of Anchor, but some time later Doubleday sent us a series of page number references for each major article which we folded in at the beginning of each article. Thus, while the Old Testament subarticle under the Family article will tell you that the subarticle covers pages 761-768 of the 2nd volume, it does not tell you where 761 ends and 762 begins.
Sincerely,

Ahh, I see those now. Thanks for the help!
