Anna Wallman | 9 comments I can't find the librarian manual at the moment! Where is it? I have recently read a number of graphic versions of novels. I found separate posts for them, but on the Dracula one I also found one under the original novel;
What is the policy- should graphic novels not have a post of their own and the above book not count as an edition of the original book? In my opinion, it is the original story, but shortened of course.

lethe | 13747 comments The homepage of the Librarians group has a link to the manual.


Adaptations are different from abbreviated novels and should not be combined with the original.

Arenda | 20804 comments The link to the librarian manual is also on the help page:
(Help page is at the bottom of each page; except for the homepage where it is located somewhere else.)

Policy for combining is also on each combine page at the right of the page.
