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. 19 Nurturing Australian film talents 3 Australia’s forgotten Prime Minister 7 British decision shocks Australia 13 Unsung healers: Anzacs and their family carers 10 Ladies and bagpipes: the ‘world’s greatest novelty’ 22 Orchestras spur demand for culture 25 What happened to our airmen?
