3.7.2 Rules or conventions
Purpose - To identify protocols on which description based
Rule – Record the international, national, and/or local rules or conventions followed in preparing the description.
For born digital materials, this element should be used in roughly the same way, although there may need to be reference to a more varied set of rules. Perhaps we should also be honest and say when we haven’t followed any rules or when we have only followed them very loosely?
