Only some of the documents in DocDB are publicly accessible. If you try to access documents that are not visible to the public, you will receive an error. Also, all of the interface for creating new documents is hidden from you. If you arrived to this public interface by mistake and wish to add a document you must use the private interface instead. If you don't know how to find it, ask your DocDB administrator
document consists of a number of files along with
additional information about the document.
If you are looking for a specific document and know its document number, the easiest thing is to just enter the number in the box on the home page. If you are looking for documents by a certain person or on a certain topic, you might want to see the list of topics or list of authors. A full fledged search engine is also available.
If you want more information about how DocDB works or would like to use it for your own project, please visit the DocDB homepage.
