I should know the answer to this question, but is there a place that lists the abbreviations for different texts.  For example, the NET (Mark 16:9) list several texts that support the longer ending in Mark and those that do not.  Below is a portion of the textual note from the NET Bible, Mark 16:9.

The Gospel of Mark ends at this point in some witnesses א B 304 sys sams armmss Eus Eusmss Hiermss), including two of the most respected mss (א B).

This shorter ending is usually included with the longer ending (LΨ 083 099 0112 579 al); k, however, ends at this point. Most mss include the longer ending (vv. 9–20) immediately after v. 8 (A C D W [which has a different shorter ending between vv. 14 and 15] Θ f13 33 2427 𝔐 lat syc,p,h bo);

Thanks,

Ron

Ronald, abbreviations are usually found within each resource. For instance below is a screenshot from the NET Bible highlighting where it is found in that resource. A great way to check where they are found is to do an inline search for "abbreviations".

The NET Bible has a key to the manuscript abbreviations at the end.  You can follow this link to find it.

You may own the NT Manuscript Explorer Interactive which can help you outside the NET Bible.

I looked at the beginning of the NET Bible, but never thought to look at the end.

Thanks.
