This is a presentation of the library's most enduring artifact: the bibliographic record. The focus is on understanding the theory behind IFLA's Functional Requirements for Bibliographic Records (FRBR). Illustrations, practical implementations, and research initiatives are also summarized. A deeper understanding of the importance of "works" and the legacy that it brings along are the goal of this entertaining and informative look into our past, present and future.
