Ah, that's interesting. I was wondering about just using <note>. Maybe that is the best option. It really is just a helpful pointer to researchers to indicate that there is related material elsewhere in the same collection.

> Hi there,
> I'm just wanting to advise an archivist who wants to refer to related material that is within the same collection.
> The <relatedmaterial> tag is NOT for materials related by provenance.
> However, it is comparable to ISAD(G) 3.5.3
> ISAD(G) 3.5.3 is for "information about units of description in the same repository or elsewhere that ARE related by provenance or other association(s)
> Has anyone come up against this issue before?
> I know <separatedmaterial> is for materials related by provenance, but it's for materials that have been separated from the described materials. In this case there is no separation - it's all one collection, but the cataloguer wants to point researchers to related items within the collection.
