Sales Publication -- No symbol number

The United Nations produces many reports that are released as sales publications. In general, sales publications are not part of the depository documents however we may have purchased a sales publication separately. These items may or may not include a document symbol number.

Example: A sample record for a Sales Publication from Readex AccessUN showing:

  • Document Number: No Document Symbol
  • Document Date: 1992
  • Readex Year: Not Filmed
  • Document Type: Sales Publication
  • Title Yearbook on Human Rights

Search by title in the Cornell Library Catalog or Worldcat.

Yearbook on Human Rights

*Note: Request items not held at Cornell via BorrowDirect or Interlibrary Loan.

Search for the title (not the symbol number) in the library catalog or the Worldcat union catalog. Note: If a sales publication also includes a document symbol number, there is a small chance that it was filmed by Readex for the microfiche or microcard collections.

 If the item is not found in a library catalog search AccessUN to see if the document is included in the Readex UN Microcard/Microfiche collection (1946 - 2009).
