Glenn Sanders <[log in to unmask]> makes a valid point. About 12 years
ago, when I was chief of information services at the World Bank (which
included archives and records management), we undertook to link record series
to business processes. In my opinion, that makes a great deal more sense,
especially in an electronic records context as it facilitates macro-appraisal
and disposition management at the BP or sub-BP levels.

If the series is based on something changeable eg dept or business unit,
then over time you end up with a mess unless you are completely electronic.
