It needs to be NAB'd, as the title of the thread indicates.

Annika | 568 comments Done

Elizabeth (Alaska) | 6585 comments Thanks, Annika, but excuse me for asking - what did you do?


message 6: by Annika (new)

Annika | 568 comments I changed the media type to not a book.

Which is why I don't do these. I suppose I could learn, but my brain seems not to want to. ;-)

Annika | 568 comments I guess there is no time like the present to learn :)

Feel free.


message 11: by Abcdarian (new)

Abcdarian | 19392 comments It sounds off-puttingly complex in the manual, that's for sure. :-)

There's a new "mark as not a book" link on the edit page, but then it says not to use it for books, so I'm not sure if this is a situation where you can, or cannot, use it. We're all in a constant state of learning around here.


message 12: by Annika (new)

Annika | 568 comments Well, I hope I did this correctly. But please, someone who's done this before, feel free to check.

Abcdarian | 19392 comments Looks good to me.

I think I come across these only every couple of months and that's not enough for me to cement the process. So I come here and let Rivka - or a super - deal with it. Thank goodness for Rivka and the supers! (and the rest of you who are willing to foray into the unusual)

It's not that new. About 2 years old, I think. It won't show up for any item that has been shelved by even a single user.

And books should not be NAB'd by any method. But legitimately NAB-able items can be. This one definitely is -- NAB (via the link) pending.

lethe | 13664 comments I think this item is NAB-able (has been shelved though):

I already combined it with the actual books.

Michael Korleone (michaelkorleone) | 3881 comments Should this be NABbed?
https://www.goodreads.com/book/show/2...

A user posted that the page count for the book (ISBN13: 9780738747439) that came with this tarot kit is 184. But as per previous edits, Rivka NABbed it once (and someone else changed it back). Since there is a book involved, should we NAB it?

The format of that item on Amazon is "cards".

Edited.

Cassandra (cassanj) | 4919 comments I've come across 2 items that are new to me, so not sure if they should be NABbed? They appear to be calendars with a few quotes sprinkled in (not sure if that counts as "additional content") https://www.goodreads.com/book/show/2... and https://www.goodreads.com/book/show/2.... Thanks!


message 23: by rivka, Librarian Moderator (new)

Those are definitely borderline, but I think barely pass the "additional content" qualification.

This is definitely not a series but a publisher's collection, but I'm wondering if these "full cast audio drama adaptations" should not be NABbed?

(See also https://www.goodreads.com/topic/show/...)


message 26: by Chris (new)

Chris Millington | 157 comments As I understand it dramatisations of works that have been published in print are ok but original dramatisations which have appeared on audio only aren't. Looking at the entries these Big Finish audio dramas would fall into the first category and don't need to be NABbed.

Ah, that makes sense. I hope you are right, because that makes it a lot easier to distinguish which dramatizations are allowed :)

Cassandra (cassanj) | 4919 comments This one is a DVD, so it should definitely be NABbed, right? https://www.goodreads.com/book/show/1...

Would like to hear from rivka if these dramatizations are indeed allowed, so I can move the "series" info to the edition field and delete the series instead of having them NABbed.

lethe | 13664 comments Bump


message 32: by Cassandra (last edited Jun 16, 2016 08:32AM) (new)

Cassandra (cassanj) | 4919 comments This appears to be an interview portion of an audiobook version https://www.goodreads.com/book/show/2..., available here on Audible http://www.audible.com/pd/History/Int...

Does this qualify it as a book, or should it be NABbed/deleted?


message 33: by Melanie (new)

Melanie (mvalente89) | 1759 comments Address book, NAB please?

Also would like a verdict on #30 (25-27).


message 35: by Krazykiwi (new)

Krazykiwi | 1767 comments RE #30 A lot of dramatizations are available via Audible which muddies things somewhat and makes it hård to draw a form line. BBC Radio ones for instance often turn up there, but others too.

message 41: by Dobby (new)

Dobby (dobby0390) | 3610 comments Doing some other work and ran across this self-described magazine: https://www.goodreads.com/book/show/2...

which is linked to this series: https://www.goodreads.com/series/1385...

which appears to be 42 issues of a magazine. The series description begins "Interzone is a British fantasy and science fiction magazine."

Is this an exception to the no-magazine policy?

I am very confused. (First time. Ever. Write it down.)

Literary magazines with an ISBN (such as Granta) are allowed, but I must say I find the rules rather hazy on this point.

Magazines published as Kindle editions stay.


message 44: by Lau Maia (new)

Lau Maia | 440 comments I tried to follow instructions in the manual but I got a bit confused as this is not a book

https://www.goodreads.com/book/show/8...

I changed the name of the author and I know i'm suppose to combine but as the edition has more than 5 reviews I got a little confused on what to do :)


message 45: by Dobby (last edited Sep 11, 2016 02:24PM) (new)

Dobby (dobby0390) | 3610 comments Lau, I added some details from the WorldCat listing for this ISBN. I changed the format to Videocassette Tape, and I copied the description from WorldCat so that it is clear that this is a videocassette tape of a television show. The book record had been using the default description, so it wasn't readily apparent what the problem was.

I didn't fix the problem; I just clarified the record a little bit. :-)

NAB'd.


message 49: by lethe (new)

lethe | 13664 comments There are many items upthread that still need to be NAB'd.


message 50: by Bookbee (new)

Bookbee | 142 comments This is a radio podcast. I think it should it be NAB'd? Thank you. :)
