565 numbered volumes. Volumes 1-562 are chronological although within some individual volumes receipts and expenses are categorized by type. Volume numbers 563, 564, and 565 are out of place chronologically and cover the following years: 563 (1316), 564 (1319), 565 (1331). The Fondo camerale comprises this series, Collectoriae, and Obligationes et solutiones
These are the cumulative form of the monthly income and expenditure reports by the papal treasurer. Some volumes from this series have wandered to the Cancellaria Apostolica series Registra Avenionensia, and some unbound Introitus et exitus material is in the Miscellaneous official series Instrumenta miscellanea

ASV Index 1036, part I provides a volume by volume series listing. Entries include: the former and current volume numbers, inclusive dates, the exact spine title or brief contents summary (although one cannot tell which is which), and sometimes a note on a particularly interesting item in the volume. Additional important information concerning the accuracy of this listing is on page 286 of Index 1036. Entries generally identify the participants and the business correctly, but the relationship referred to in Indice 1036 can sometimes be misleading. An alphabetical index to important churches, selected persons, and dioceses which are cited in Indice 1036 appears on p. 233
Also useful is Joseph de Loye, Les archives de la Chambre apostolique au XIVe sic̀ˆle, part 1, Inventaire (Paris, 1899). In this work, de Loye provides a more analytical index for the first 380 volumes. Entries include: volume number, inclusive dates, the exact spine title or a brief titular contents summary (although again it is difficult to tell which is which). In addition there are excerpts, sometimes fairly substantial, of actual entries. There are also indices at the end of the book to entries for papal administration (Camera in Avignon, Manualia, Inventaria Thesauri); provincial administration organized by geographic area; and collections, again organized by geographic area. De Loye lists Registra Avenionensia volumes that contain Introitus et exitus materials
ASV Indice 194 (fol. 7-9) provides a concordance between the former and current segnature to volumes currently identified as v. 1-608. The 'numero vecchio' is found in many older historical studies and in the Schedario Garampi
ASV Indice 114 (p. 49-53v, 73-76), by Felice Contelori, provides curious excerpts of selected volumes in this series
ASV Indice 124, "Primo Sbozzo di Inventario di tutti i libri che sono nell'Archivio Segreto Vaticano" by Giovanni Bissaiga in 1672 provides more descriptive and accurate volume titles for select volumes of some series. A few Introitus/Exitus volumes are listed on folios 216r-230v, 235rv, and 251v
