Creating a symbol library - Adobe Illustrator Windows

I want to create a symbol library of symbols that I tend to use a lot in different doents. When ever I place a piece of art work in the symbol library in a doent, they dissapear from the symbol pallet when I open a new doent. Any help with this would be much appreciated. Thanks :)...

    From the Symbols palette menu (click the small arrow to the right of the Symbol palette), select All Unused & delete them (optional). Now add your Symbols to the Symbols palette. Choose Save Symbol Library from the Symbol palette menu. When you open a new doent, from the Symbol palette menu, choose Open Symbol Library > Other Library, locate your saved file & Open it. You could now see your previously saved symbols in the New doent.

    Or you could just open the CMYK_Startup file, or RGB_startup file, paste them into there and save the file. Whenever you create a new file, they will be ther as an option.
