    Information resources seem to be neither fully abstract universals, nor particular concrete arrangements of matter and energy. The subjects of our metadata statements are therefore elusive. This puzzle presents few practical ...

    We suggest that IFLA’s Functional Requirements for Bibliographic Records is an interesting, if unexpected, example of Merton’s “theories of the middle range” and show how theoretical analysis and refinement of such theories ...
