Help: Linking to Documents on GPO Access

Documents that exist within databases on GPO Access cannot be bookmarked. In order to link to these types of documents, a unique URL string must be created. This string consists of three elements:

  • the URL of the cgi script which retrieves the document
  • the Database Name which contains the document
  • the Document ID of the document

To assist users in linking to documents within databases, the following form has been created. Simply select the database/year from the pull-down list, enter the DocID number, and hit GENERATE. This form cannot be used to link to documents within the Code of Federal Regulations (CFR). To link to documents within the CFR, use these instructions.
