|Definition:||A brief description of the digital object.|
|Purpose:||Provides information about the Digital Object that is not apparent from Object Designator or Object Identifier.|
|Relationship:||This element is independent.|
Use this element if Object Designator does not provide sufficient information for users to distinguish among multiple digital objects or to indicate that a single object is only a representative sample of a multi-page document.
Enter brief information about the physical archival materials that would assist in distinguishing between the other digital objects associated with the archival description. If no title or caption exists on the physical materials themselves, the description might include the forms of the materials and a phrase reflecting the function, activity, subject, location, or theme of the materials.
