Where this has not proved possible, copyright holders are invited to contact the publisher. The views expressed in Memento do not necessarily reflect the views of the National Archives of Australia. Understanding image citations Records held by the National Archives are described using the Commonwealth Record Series (CRS) System. 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. 20 In the shadow of Anzac: the Battle of Bardia, 1941 17 In peace and war: Japan and Australia before 1941 3 Shell-shocked: Australia after Armistice 7 Resisting the call to arms 14 Gough Whitlam: a moment in history 10 Australia's role in the apartheid sports boycott Memento 22 Office copying revolution 24 Recordkeeping in the Pacific Islands ISSUE 36 26 Faces at the Archives 28 News in brief 31 Exhibitions 31 Events Front cover: Soldiers disembarking from a troopship at Port Melbourne after returning from overseas, 1919.
