Relate a Work to Another Work

You can establish relationships between Works, creating a rich data relationship for any linked Item. Relationship qualifiers such as “component of” or “exhibited at” and other relationship types are available to establish meaningful links between Works. The relationship is reciprocal for each Work; establishing a relationship in one Work will appear in the related Work as the counterpart in the relationship.

To relate one Work to another Work:

  1. Open at least one Item linked to a Work.
  2. Select View/Edit Work Record, and the Work will open in a new tab.
  3. Select Related Works.
  4. Click the Edit button.
  5. In the Add Related Work section, select a Relation Type and another Work to relate.
  6. Save or Save and Close. You will be asked to propagate these changes to all linked Items. Select Yes.
  7. Republish the linked Items so the end user sees these changes.
