Finding the Document Number

At the bottom of every document (with a few exceptions) you'll find the Gale Document Number, which is a unique identification code made up of one or two letters followed by several numbers (for example, CX3427400011). Use the document number to refer to the record if you have any problems with viewing or retrieval. You can also make note of this number to return to the record in a later session, since searching by document number is often a search option in Advanced Search, if Advanced Search is available in the collection you are currently using. When Advanced Search is not available, some collections offer a document number search as its own search page that you can link to from the search path bar.
