Find your taxon in BPNW
Classification used by Hatch radically differs from the current concepts; below is the list of currently recognized families as used in the Guide, cross-referenced with Part & page[s] where their members are treated in the BPNW.

To jump to the desired page in the PDF files, add the following numbers into the pdf viewer page # box to the actual page number in the book: Pt.I +6 Pt.II +5 Pt.III +6 Pt.IV +7 Pt.V +11

Example: Laemophloeidae are treated in Pt. III on p.200 (see list above); to get to that page in the PDF, add 6 to the book's page number => enter 206 into the page # box of the viewer.

should we make a separate entry for each volume?
unlike some other multi-volume treatises (e.g., Manual of Nearctic Diptera or Downie & Arnett), each volume here has its own pagination and the BG citing format [cite:xxxxx,xxx] won't be helpful if we treat this as a single item
one interim solution would be adding volume # before page, e.g. [17034,5087] would mean "Vol.5, p.87"
