Creating a ‘Source Type’ for NAA

How does one go about creating a source type for sources sourced from the National Archives of Australia (NAA). First of all you need to create a new source type…in this case we will call it “National Archives of Australia” and enter the following sentence structures:

Full footnote:
National Archives of Australia: [AGENCY NAME]; [SERIES NUMBER], [SERIES TITLE]. [SERIES DATE RANGE]; [ITEM NUMBER], [ITEM TITLE], [ITEM DATE RANGE].

Short footnote:
NAA: [SERIES NUMBER], [ITEM NUMBER].

Bibliography:
National Archives of Australia: [AGENCY NAME]; [SERIES NUMBER], [SERIES TITLE]. [SERIES DATE RANGE]; [ITEM NUMBER], [ITEM TITLE], [ITEM DATE RANGE].

Now when entering a new source (for instance a military record for an individual), simply hit the source type button and select the newly created “National Archives of Australia” source type.
