English term or phrase: archival description
Ich übersetze gerade eine Art Meta-Suchmaschine zum Durchsuchen von Archiven weltweit zu einem bestimmten Thema. Ich suche den entsprechenden deutschen Fachterminus, und zwar im Sinne von

"the product of analyzing, organizing, and recording details about the formal elements of a record or collection of records, such as creator, title, dates, extent, and contents, to facilitate the work's identification, management, and understanding."

Diese "archival descriptions" lassen sich durchsuchen.

Ich hatte vermutet, dass hier Findmittel/Findbücher/Repertorien gemeint sind, allerdings kommt im Ausgangstext separat auch der Terminus "finding aids" vor, der eine andere Bedeutung als "archival description" zu haben scheint. Handelt es sich vielleicht schlichtweg um "Archivgut"?

Vielen Dank!
