Amy,
please, could you be a bit more explicit? Such as I understand, the
creator's original order would define the levels (series or not); even if
the original order is not actually arranged, two levels could be defined:
fonds and pieces. In addition, encoding according EAD allows you to re-
arrange in the computer information for physically not-arranged
materials, or something like this. Really, I would need more information
to give a good answer.
