        I meant that if we had to have Works/Superwork records in Inventory, that they could behave like the Container records. I am not sure we "have to" have these records.

        I think we should discuss this further - I fear that if works live in inventory and not the entity app and referenced by inventory that inventory as abstraction becomes more difficult - how do you model an instance with MARC bib that references no work vs a bibliographic description set that includes a work and an instance. - On the other hand maybe inventory record types need to be recast as entities.

        I agree Christie. We need to discuss what would the expected behavior be if, for example: Work-entities are stored in the Entities App, and used as reference data in Inventory. This seems easy to understand where work-clusters are possible, but what happens for the new, or one-off, publications. What would we expect in terms of reference data?

        I think that there are a couple of solutions - no work is required so the data is a local string - with no reference data - much like an inventory instance without an SRS bib. The other possibility is to create a work. I guess this would depend on where you fall on the everything needs a work spectrum.
