How to Use the Print Code Index

To browse the Print Code Index, select a topic/service area from the blue boxes on the left side of this page. Titles are organized by topic, then unique 4 digit print code. 

If you have a printed copy of a pamphlet, you'll find the print code on the back cover, in the lower left corner, with two letters and six numbers: XX85-####. The four digit number at the end of the print code is unique to that pamphlet title.
