- Ed Summers, 10,000 Books and FRBR: “The news about 100,000 books on Freebase got me poking around with curl. I was pleased to see that Freebase actually distinguishes between a book as a work, and a particular edition of that book. To FRBR aficionados this will be familiar as the difference between a Work and a Manifestation.”

Umlaut doesn’t currently use xID, but should.”
- Joe Hourcle?, Thoughs on Aggregate Works in FRBR: “Aggregate works are a form of collection, and we can potentially have many different forms of collections. Collections may be aggregated in a single manifestation, or they may exist as a series of independant aggregations.”
