  • Collection in which the item is found. Example: Alex Haley papers.
  • Series in which the item is found. Example: Manuscripts of Alex Haley
  • Folder title in which the item is found (if available). Example: Manuscripts.
  • The document itself, including page, section, or date information, where necessary.
