  • How to use the Records
    The 1977 to 1979 correspondence series resulted from an extension and development of the 1975-1977 series. Division of Industrial Development files were included and many primary numbers were changed or added. While the Department might have considered the files were still in the one series, the introduction of new subjects and the instances where there were two files on different subjects but with the same file number, really meant that a new series had been introduced.

    It is unclear what registers and indexes to the series existed, as it is known that some control records were destroyed at the time the new multiple number series was introduced in 1979. The List of Files which comprises this series may have served as the register of files as it is set out like an authorised list of subject headings, which also goes down to the level of the specific file.

    The List consists of foolscap sheets held in a spring back binder. The front sheet is headed `New File Lists' and details all the primary subjects and numbers. Following this are the handwritten lists of primary and secondary classifications and there is space for expansion between each classification of actual files. The List also includes the previous file numbers from either the multiple number on the D.I.D. annual single number series.

    This version of the List may have been updated at some stage (and the subsequent list probably destroyed in 1979) as some files in the series are not included in the List.
