Description of this SeriesDescription of this Series
  • How to use the Records
    A multiple number file registration system was phased into operation from the beginning of 1979. The new system was a four number system with the first three numbers representing the subject classifications and the fourth digit indicating the specific file. (The exception to this was the 2/1 company files - see VPRS 7316 description.)

    Except for the company files, there was no separate register of files, and the Authorised lists of files served this purpose.

    Sheets were printed with spaces for the primary and secondary heading, and then columns headed `Tertiary Title', No. file Title and File No. When the sheets were first completed, entries were firstly typed and subsequently handwritten as new files were raised. In some of the classifications, the previous numbers of top numbered files are included and there are various annotations for files which were cancelled, archived and re-numbered. The sheets were placed in red plastic folders according to the primary number.

    The lists were presumably retyped and updated when they became too untidy or the system was amended significantly. The lists in the first consignment are not dated, but they possibly dated from 1979, when the correspondence series commenced. It is likely that they were superseded by new lists when changes were made to some primary numbers in 1984. There is not a list for all the primary numbers in the system, and in a couple of folders there is more than one version of the list - i.e. the list was superseded at two different times.
