Uniform Titles

What are they and why do we need them?

According to Richard Smiraglia:

  • Identify particular intellectual entity (Homer’s Illiad)

  • Collate the manifestations of the work that have appeared under differing titles proper

  • Distinguish among works that have similar bibliographic characteristics
