    2. 2. Search = Shop
    3. 3. In a Digital World ✤ ...we do not know if what we are getting is what we actually wanted ✤ There are so many listings for so many books and so many authors ✤ Ambiguity = lost sales

    7. 7. How It Works
    8. 8. Relating Titles✤ Metadata allows for “Source ISTC”✤ Allows linkages between the derivation and the original✤ Identifiers identify; metadata describes✤ All derivations of “New Moon” can be related by using “New Moon” the novel’s ISTC as a Source ISTC in the metadata.
    9. 9. International Standard NameIdentifier✤ Identifies names✤ Disambiguates authors with same name, collocates authors who spell their name in different ways
    10. 10. How It Works✤ Pseudonyms get separate ISNIs✤ Related to Source ISNI in metadata
