Particularly when an authority record is only linked to a single archival description, it can be hard for users to quickly find and identify the link. Consider ways in which this usability can be enhance - one suggestion is to create a sort of Relationships area that would include the information in the main part of the showscreen. Otherwise, simple CSS styling adjustments (perhaps some padding to move it down from the very top of the record) could increase its visibility.

Padding helps a bit. Marking this verified for now, but we can perhaps revisit other ways to improve this in the future.
