Viewing records

Archival description

On each record view page, below the image of the archival record, there is a table of information describing the record. Every record has a:

  • title – a pithy description of the content
  • date – either a day, month, year or year range
  • record creator – the agency that created the record
  • reference number – the archival series and item number.

Where appropriate, we have also added information in the fields:

  • content creator – the person who wrote or otherwise created the content of the record
  • description – the format of the record and/or to whom it was addressed
  • notes – extra contextualising information
  • copyright notice – the holder of intellectual property rights for the record.
