Tailtiu | 482 comments Here are some "Kijk en kook"-magazines: https://www.goodreads.com/search?page...

Should they stay or do they count as NOT A BOOK?

Paula (paulaan) | 7029 comments If they are single issue magazines then they should be deleted, we only NAB things that are not books if they have ASIN/ISBN to stop them being re imported by the auto imports

lethe | 13747 comments The individual volumes have ISBNs: http://opc4.kb.nl/DB=1/SET=2/TTL=6/SH...

Arenda | 20804 comments Here is the Worldcat listing for #1: http://www.worldcat.org/title/kijk-en...

I'll update them with the isbn. (Worldcat lists two isbn's: one is for Elsevier, the other for Becht, Worldcat doesn't specify which is which, but kb.nl does).

Arenda | 20804 comments Updated them (with some help) with isbn's and other details.
Replaced Elsevier in the author field with the photographer and translator that are both credited on Worldcat

lethe | 13747 comments (Stupid KB never remembers the search results.)

Looking a lot better now :)
I think a series can be created, what do you think?


message 8: by Arenda (new)

Arenda | 20804 comments Non-fiction series are always difficult. Personally, I wouldn't bother creating a series.


message 9: by lethe (new)

lethe | 13747 comments OK. (I think this is a true series, but it's not as if they're wildly popular, so I don't think anyone will care one way or another :) )

I was working on Elsevier and they got in my way.
