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. 16 Australia's prime ministers online 3 Document Z: creating fiction from the Archives 6 Shining lights: dedication along the coastline 11 The games we played 8 Australia's book crisis -- and why Curtin intervened Memento 18 Power for the people 20 Restoring a lost heritage ISSUE 37 22 Letters of a Nation 24 60 years of Australian citizenship 26 Faces at the Archives 28 News in brief 31 Exhibitions 31 Events Front cover: Tunnel workers from the Snowy Mountains Scheme after finishing a shift in 1963.
