What search criteria should I use for a check search?

You’ll need to enter a volume/folio. The volume/folio (title reference) is the unique identifier allocated to each title.

You can perform a name search to retrieve the volume/folio if you don’t have these details.

The format to enter a volume/folio should be:

  • volume number up to five digits
  • followed by a space, / or –
  • followed by a numeric folio number up to five digits
  • optionally followed by the letter ‘a’ (this suffix must not be present for LR or CL formats).
