Optionally, archives may choose not to use general material designations, particularly when an archive may hold a work in both formats.  The scope of an institution’s collections and the physical description area may make the general material designation redundant.  However, institutions that integrate their bibliographic records with records for other media may wish to apply general material designations.  See AACR2 1.1C.
