subgroup

Relationships

n. ~ A body of related records within a record group or collection, each corresponding to an administrative subdivision in the originating organization.

In some instances, subgroups are based on geographical, chronological, functional, or similar types of the material itself. If the organization has a complex hierarchical structure, each subgroup may be further divided into subordinate subgroups to reflect the levels of the hierarchical structure.
