Vicki | 18 comments I am a big fan of Ed Mc Bain's THE 87TH PRECINCT NOVELS. Is this a series or not?

Vicki | 18 comments As I was setting up my bookshelf I did not see any that listed the order numbers and before I started a big project I thought I should check. I only did a random check of about 8 books but none of the editions showed the order.

Vicki | 18 comments New Question...

I am a fairly new librarian and I am willing to take on the project of putting the series order on the books but I want to do it right. My question is : Do I need to change each edition? They appear to already be combined but none of them list the series name or number.


This Is Not The Michael You're Looking For | 949 comments Unfortunately, yes. As things currently stand, if you want to add series info to a book, you have to add it to every edition separately.

Vicki | 18 comments Thanks! I just do not want to do a half job. Thank goodness for C & P to make things faster.

Going back to my project now.

jenjn79 | 565 comments Some people add series label to only the most popular edition. Other will add it to the first few popular. I try to add it to all, but if there are a lot of editions (like 20+) I will add it to those that have reviews of that specific edition.
