What search criteria should I use for a check search?

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

You can complete a name or address search to retrieve the title reference.

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