uniform title


In authority control, the distinctive title selected for cataloging purposes to represent a work issued under more than one title, usually in more than one expression or manifestation. Uniform titles are commonly used to catalog sacred texts (example: Bible) and liturgical and musical works.
Also refers to the collective title used by convention to collocate publications of an author, composer, or corporate body in a single volume or set of volumes containing two or more complete works, or extracts from several works, usually of a particular literary or musical form (AACR2).
