=== Digital Folder Number List ===
 
Digital Folder Number Lists are created for fakey browse articles to help people negotiate fakey browses. A collection sometimes has DGS numbers, not words, and no one knows what lies in the folders, so a fakey browse is created to help the patron find information. (If you find a collection that needs a “fakey browse,” add to the Fakey Browse Collections Spreadsheet on OneDrive)
