One of the best books available on the subject of archival description is: The Archival Fonds from Theory to Practice, (Bureau of Canadian Archivists, 1992), edited by Terry Eastwood. In that book, Heather MacNeill's article "The Context is All: Describing a Fonds and its Parts in Accordance with the Rules for Archival Description," (pages 195-225) gives an excellent overview of the concept of the fonds and of multi-level description in general.
The CCA also plans to release an official RAD primer within the year.
