My copy of this book only says OTHERLAND on the cover. The Goodreads listing says CITY OF GOLDEN SHADOW (OTHERLAND #1). You can see the cover for yourself by clicking on the link.

The manual says the title should match the book cover. Can I change it to say OTHERLAND: THE CITY OF GOLDEN SHADOW (OTHERLAND #1) without all caps of course

I ask because the book has 22 editions and almost all only mention OTHERLAND as the series name. If I sort by title the first word is CITY. My cover doesn't say CITY so I wouldn't find it.

Empress (the_empress) It seems to be correct:
Also the other editions show the full title. But I am always confused in this situations. Let's see what other librarians have to say.

When the series title is the ONLY title on the cover (see also and, and the individual book's title only appears inside on the title page, it's ok to include the series title in the title field. See those two examples for formatting.
