The organisation of archival material according to archival principles of provenance and original order, where the latter does not exist the archivist will devise an arrangement based on the perceived inter-relationship of the documents.
Information on the physical or logical arrangement of the record(s), or how they have been treated by the The National Archives. For example: Alphabetically, county by county, in subject order within blocks of years. May apply to all levels except item
is the body of principles and practices which archivists follow to group records in such a way as to reflect the manner in which they were held and used by the office or person creating the records. It involves the fundamental principles of respect des fonds, provenance, and sanctity of original order. The key units in archival arrangement are: record groups, sub-groups, and record series.
"The intellectual and physical process of putting archives and records into order in accordance with accepted archival principles, particularly those of provenance and original order. If, after detailed examination, the original order is identified as a totally haphazard accumulation making the records irretrievable (but not an odd, unorderly, or difficult arrangement), the archivist may (after documenting this original order) impose an arrangement that presents the records objectively and facilitates their use. See also Description, Original order." (KA, p.464)
The act and result of physically organizing records in accordance with archival principles such as provenance and original order. The process includes sorting, packing in file folders and boxes, labelling, and shelving.

The intellectual and physical operations involved in the analysis and organization of records. Based upon the principle of provenance, and especially the principle of original order, the purpose of arrangement is to group the components of a fonds into an order which reflects the system by which the documents were originally created and used. Such a system will (i) reflect the structure and/or functions of the creator; (ii) show relationships between records; and (iii) demonstrate the original meaning and significance of the documents. If no original order is evident, then an order based upon other criteria (such as functions, or alphabetical, chronological, geographical, or subject order) may be used. Arrangement may be carried out at all or any of the following levels: repository, fonds, series, file unit, or item.
The organization of archival materials according to accepted archival principles. Physical arrangement includes numbering, foldering, labelling and shelving. The intellectual arrangement involves the organization of a fonds and collection which reflects the use of the records by an individual, family, or corporate body. Usually a fonds/collection is arranged hierarchically: Series; sub-series; files; items. See the Whiteway example See also: Arrangement Note
The intellectual and physical processes and results of organizing documents in accordance with accepted archival principles, at as many as necessary of the following levels: collection, record group, subgroup, series, subseries, file unit, and item. The processes usually include packing, labeling, and shelving and are primarily intended to achieve physical control over archival holdings. (SAA)
A set of written or verbal instructions that specify the nature of the various components of a performance of a composition (intro, head, accompaniment, solos, interludes, coda, etc.) and the order in which they are put together
A musical work, or a portion thereof, rewritten for a medium of performance different from that for which the work was originally intended; a simplified version of a work for the same medium of performance. (AACR2)
In music, an arrangement refers either to a rewriting of a piece of existing music with additional new material or to a fleshing-out of a compositional sketch, such as a lead sheet. If a musical adaptation does not include new material, it is more accurately termed a transcription.
() -- the quantifiable, descriptive relationship between the number of times a movement cycle occurs and the number of times a subsequent event occurs immediately following the movement cycle, or onset of the movement cycle, but where determination of a functional or contingent relationship has not been made yet. One of the components of the Is Equation. The equivalent corollary term in the Does Equation is contingency.
may refer to a variety of formal or informal agreements worked out concerning the conditions under which a bankrupt company may operate; often, it refers to an extension of time in which debt can be paid off. This was the term used under old Chapter XI.
an arrangement differs from an assembly in that the parts of the model folded from separate sheets of paper are not integrated with each other except by proximity or alignment. A multiple-sheet design which is held together by glue is an arrangement not an assembly.
an organized structure for arranging or classifying; "he changed the arrangement of the topics"; "the facts were familiar but it was in the organization of them that he was original"; "he tried to understand their system of classification"
