Readers may find it helpful to use Mitrokhin's and Professor Christopher Andrew's published guides to the archive, available in the Archives Centre reading room. Use the index to find the text you need and look at the footnotes. If these give the citation "vol 9, ch 6" for instance, it means that the relevant entry should be found in MITN 1/9; if "vol 7", you need MITN 1/7. The volumes referred to are MITN series 1, the first volumes that Mitrokhin produced while in Russia and arranged by place. Unfortunately it is not always easy to match the item numbers to the page numbers in these volumes, but the chapters should match up.
If the relevant footnote gives a K file number and then an item number (eg: K5-22) it means that the relevant entry will be in MITN 2 and the Archives Centre list gives the old K number for each of the volumes (eg: MITN 2/1 on "The Church" was formerly K1). These volumes are then arranged numerically by item.
