Balisage Paper: How are dependent works realized?

Jacob Jett, David Dubin

Research output: Chapter in Book/Report/Conference proceedingConference contribution


When a work of authorship is published in a new edition, what exactly is the relationship between the edition and the contribution of the author or authors? Specifications in the FRBR family offer contrasting accounts of how we should understand the relationships among an edition, its text, and the work of authorship they realize. Resolving these puzzles could improve the integration of digital resources across widely distributed and increasingly heterogeneous projects, but simple recognition that these puzzles exist may prove as useful as (or even more so than) arguments that one account is more correct than the others.
