In the ACCS, references to Augustine's sermons are to the Benedictine sermon numbering, but Logos links them to the NPNF sermon numbering. Clicking on a ACCS link to an Augustine sermon, when it takes me to NPNF, puts me 50 sermons away from the actual text I want to read.

I reported a "typo" for one instance, but do not think that is best for all the links. Where/how would be best to report this kind of behavior?

This is probably the best place to report it. It would be helpful if you could give me an example. Letting me know here what the resource ID is and where in the book it occurs would be enough for me to investigate it further.

ACCS - Ancient Christian Commentary on Scripture, vol. IVb:


NPNF - Nicene and Post-Nicene Fathers, vol. 1.6 : 


Attached is a screen shot looking at ACCS for John 15:18, with the NPNF-1.6 open twice to different locations. There is a quote from Augustine that is from Sermon 96.8.  When I click the link, Logos opens NPNF to sermon XCVI (96), which only has 2 sections and has nothing to do with the quote. NPNF tells me that the sermon is also known as CXLVI. BEN. (Benedictine numbering). Hmmm, I say, that numbering differs by 50.  When I scroll back through NPNF 50 sermons to NPNF XLVI, I find that it is also known as XCVI. BEN. That is where I find the sermon that the ACCS is quoting in section 8 and I find the quote in a different translation. ACCS says that it is sermon 96, by which they obviously mean Benedictine numbering, but the link goes to NPNF at the same numerical value (96) but the wrong sermon because it uses a different numbering system for the Augustine sermons. 

I have found this to be true for every Augustine sermon quote I've tried in ACCS-IVb. I have not checked the other ACCS volumes.
