Gmelin Handbook organization?

Our library recently inherited the many-volumed Gmelin Handbook of Inorganic Chemistry. I have to admit that I am relatively unfamiliar with this resource. The library has determined that there are "a couple ways" to organize it, and I have been asked to provide some intellectual guidance (pah). I've found some resources about this (, but I'm seeking input from those of you out there who might be able to provide some more direct insight. Thank you!
