This book addresses the issue of focusing on known-item identification and retrieval vs. collocation and retrieval of works in the construction of catalogs. It reports significant research on the role of works as key entities for information retrieval, focusing on the importance of recognizing and using works in information-need and the importance of the work entity in the construction of bibliographic databases, Internet search engines, etc.
