In OneSearch and other library catalogs, the Uniform Title is used to bring together different versions of the same work. This is useful because:
The uniform title follows a formula that can be remembered through this acronym:
FINK: Form* (Genre), Instrument (medium of performance), number, key.
*Form is always plural: quartets, sonatas, symphonies, etc.
