To create a series or add a work to it, go to a "work" page. The "Common Knowledge" section now includes a "Series" field. Enter the name of the series to add the book to it. Works can belong to more than one series. In some cases, as with Chronicles of Narnia , disagreements about order necessitate the creation of more than one series. Tip: If the series has an order, add a number or other descriptor in parenthesis after the series title eg.
By default, it sorts by the number, or alphabetically if there is no number. If you want to force a particular order, use the character to divide the number and the descriptor. So, " 0 prequel " sorts by 0 under the label "prequel. Series was designed to cover groups of books generally understood as such see Wikipedia: Book series. Like many concepts in the book world, "series" is a somewhat fluid and contested notion. A good rule of thumb is that series have a conventional name and are intentional creations , on the part of the author or publisher.
For now, avoid forcing the issue with mere "lists" of works possessing an arbitrary shared characteristic, such as relating to a particular place. Avoid series that cross authors, unless the authors were or became aware of the series identification eg.
Also avoid publisher series, unless the publisher has a true monopoly over the "works" in question. So, the Dummies guides are a series of works. But the Loeb Classical Library is a series of editions, not of works. Home Groups Talk Zeitgeist. Big news! LibraryThing is now free to all! Read the blog post and discuss the change on Talk.

Post a Comment. This Guy! This book isn't exactly new, but it was new to me! I bought Companion 3 a while ago, and having 3 without 1 and 2 just seemed awkward to me, so I decided to get them. Let's see what we get from Philosophers and Kings. Overview Table Of Contents I like to start with a look at the table of contents to get an idea of what is all covered in this book. The section on kings covers ways that governments have historically organized throughout the historic periods covered by Low-Tech , namely, through human prehistory to early colonial times , and then segues a bit into economics and book-keeping technologies.
