This paper addresses the problem of managing, handling and archiving multiple digital manifestations of literary works. The problem was motivated by a real requirement at the National Library of Portugal. It is proposed an approach for the problem based on the concept of digital binding of multiple manifestations of digital works, taking into account their technical and intellectual contents as well as their metadata and possible contexts of usage. It is thereafter described a framework where one can manage and relate several manifestations, bound in a new object containing technical and bibliographic information about the literary work whose manifestations were included. The model is implemented as a repository managed by an XML framework, comprising the data and a metadata model, as also the related editing, management and contents transforming tools.
