David,

 I am quoting the GEDCOM standard regarding the meaning of the Agency field in a source:

RESPONSIBLE_AGENCY: The organization, institution, corporation, person, or other entity that has responsibility for the associated context. For example, an employer of a person of an associated occupation, or a church that administered rites or events, or an organization responsible for creating and/or archiving records. 

I the case of a source, we're talking about the last example: "an organization responsible for creating and/or archiving records"
