Under the CRS System there are three important and related entities: agencies, series and items. Agencies (government departments, statutory authorities etc) create series (groups of related records created or kept by the same agency), which are made up of items (individual records in any format, such as files, maps, photographs or sound recordings). In Memento, images are identified using series and item numbers. The following example demonstrates how images are described: NAA: A1200, L17549. This description indicates that the image comes from the collection of the National Archives of Australia (abbreviated as NAA), from the series A1200. The item number is L17549.
