You should start here The Well-Trod Path: a Beginner's Guide to how Aperture's major parts inter-relate and with the Aperture users giulde especially the sections dealing with the library make-up.

hey Frank, thanks for responding. I read Kirby and your posts all the time and they have been a huge help. I love Kirby's guide that you have linked and I just read it again and it sounds like a sub-album of an album is not possible.
Anyways, if you were me, what would you do to organize my unorganized mess of a library if you wanted to track by years yet the metadata (import dates) are not accurate so a smart album is not possible? I do not want to mess with the metadata at all.
I was thinking of creating a folders such as "2009" with sub albums such as "Winter 2009", "Spring 2009", "Summer 2009", and "Fall 2009".

You can add organize that way...having a folder labled how ever you want, then make albums in each catagory. I think I'd be more specific than "Spring 2009" etc. To me it would be hard to remember what is in each album. I think I'd label each album as to what subject it is. Would be easier to see what was in each album, unless you rely on keywords to find your photos.
I do mine by year, then subject. But I keyword as well...ie: We live near Mt. Rushmore and have been there many times over the years, so I keyword all of them so when I'm looking for a specific photo at Mt. R, they all come up instead of having to look through several years.
