This field is used to describe the object you are cataloguing. You should include information that will allow you to identify this object and distinguish it from other objects in your collection.
There may be some overlap in the information you enter in the Brief Description field and into some of the other fields in eHive. The biggest overlap will be with the About this object (Public Description) field. Note that Brief Description is a private field, so any information entered here will not be seen on the public view of a record. You may wish to use the Public Description (About this object) field for a story or narrative about the object, and use the Brief Description field for a physical description of the object for internal use.
