ISTC

The ISTC (International Standard Text Code) is a standard identifier (ISO 21047) for work expressions rather than their manifestations which are identified by ISBN. Although developed by the book trade to manage back catalogues and intellectual property rights, the ISTC has obvious potential for FRBR implementations. For example, an ISTC identifying a particular translation of a work would relate all the manifestations which embody that translation.
