GPO Launches Deep Linking Tool for CFR Citations

by Sabrina I. Pacifici on February 27, 2004

Code of Federal Regulations: Linking to Documents:
“Documents that exist within the CFR on GPO Access cannot be bookmarked. In order to link to these documents, a unique URL string must be created. This string consists of six elements:

  • the URL of the cgi script which retrieves the document
  • the CFR Title
  • the CFR part
  • the CFR section or subpart
  • the type of file (TEXT or PDF) you’d like to link to
  • the CFR revision year (OPTIONAL) (if no year is specified, the most recent will be used)
  • To assist users in linking to documents within the CFR, the following form has been created. Simply input the required fields and hit GENERATE.”
