In the 2-3 centuries following the compilation of the Mishnah more commentaries and legal discussions were written and collected into works called the Gemorah. Two different Gemarah were compiled; one in Babylonia and one in Palestine. Collectively the Mishnah and Gemarah are called the Talmud. While there is overlap between the Babylonian (or Bavli) and Palestinian (or Jerusalem or Yerushalmi) Talmuds, the Babylonian is the larger and more comprehensive work.
The orders are:
Complete sets of the Palestinian/Jerusalem Talmud are generally shelved in BM 498. They are shelved in this order: original language (BM 498), selections (BM 498.2), translations (BM 498.5), early works about the Jerusalem Talmud (BM 498.7), then later works (BM 498.8). Individual orders and tractates are shelved with individual orders and tractates of the Talmud under BM 506
Complete sets of the Babylonian Talmud (also just called Talmud without the Babylonian qualifier) are generally shelved in BM 499. They are shelved in this order: original language (BM 499), selections (BM 499.2), translations (BM 499.5)
Works about the Talmud are shelved in BM 500-BM 504
Individual orders and tractates are shelved under BM 506
