Identifying the Serial Work as a Bibliographic Entity

Kristin Antelman <p>LRTS, vol. 48, no.4, October 2004, pp. 238-255</p>
Kristin Antelman has made an original, timely, and important contribution to the body of knowledge on bibliographic control and identification of serials. The article makes a new contribution to the literature by demonstrating how application of FRBR (Functional Requirements for Bibliographic Records) principles can solve a problem of increasing urgency in the age of electronic journals and aggregators: how to uniquely identify the serial "work" and its relationships to other serial entities. The article will stand historically as a major contribution to meeting the timeless principle of collocation in the digital age.
