<descrules> Descriptive Rules
A subelement of Profile Description <profiledesc> for the enumeration of the rules, standards, conventions, and protocols used in preparing the description.
Do not confuse this element with the RULES attribute in the <controlaccess> subelements, e.g., <persname>, <geogname>, and <title>, which are used to specify the descriptive rules, such as AACR2R, used in formulating individual access points.
The <descrules> element is comparable to ISAD(G) data element 3.7.2.
