How do I purchase a document?

You may purchase copies of documents online with a credit or debit card. You may select the pages you wish to purchase -- you do not need to purchase the entire document. When you display the document, enter the page range you wish to purchase and click on the Add To Cart button. The document will be placed in your online shopping cart. (Note: You must enter the page range according to the pages displayed in the PDF document viewer. The page numbers displayed on the document image may not match the page numbers displayed in the viewer). If you wish to purchase pages that are not consecutive (e.g. pages 2 - 3 and pages 7 - 10), you must enter the two page ranges separately and add the document to the cart twice.

When you are finished selecting the documents and pages you wish to purchase, click on the View Cart link at the top right of the screen. This displays your online shopping cart with the items you selected for purchase. You may then proceed to checkout with your shopping cart. (Note: You will need to login with your user account before completing the purchase).
