|Baraita & Tosefta
Baraita refers to a type of literature, not a specific work. Baraita means "outside" and refers to legal discussions and commentary written around the same time as the Mishnah, but not included in the Mishnah. There are many collections of baraita including Baraita de-melekhet ha-Mishkan.
Collections of baraita are shelved under BM 507 ; specific works are under BM 507.5
The Tosefta is a special collection of baraita.
It is arranged in the same way as the Mishnah (the same 6 orders,
with most of the same tractates)
Works on specific topics discussed in any of Talmudic literature and shelved in BM 509. They'll appear in alphabetic order by subject.Other Links
