Abstract
Discusses the use of hierarchy in description arguing that as a general rule, hierarchy is valuable in representations of reality when the properties of things lower in a hierarchy are directly inherited from those higher in the hierarchy. Explains why it is useful to extend this principle to archival description practices. Declares that the way to represent archives in descriptions that use the convenience of hierarchies is to seek inherited properties that are meaningfully related to archival work. This requires the representation of recordkeeping systems and organizational functions in archival documentation, not fonds or record groups
