Abstract: This proposal seeks to accomplish two things: (a) it satisfies the need for explicit instructions for
recording contents notes as structured descriptions of the container of relationship; and (b) it
provides a general structure for describing relationships. This general structure could be
extended by adding specific instructions for other types of relationships, as needed.
