cover (source: author's site)

Q: what counts as the original publication date of a web series?


message 2: by Ayshe (new)

Ayshe | 3032 comments Web serials in progress should not be added to the Goodreads database: https://www.goodreads.com/topic/show/... Has it not been published in any other form?


message 3: by idiffer (new)

idiffer | 34 comments No, but most other serials by the author have been self-published and are available on amazon, so this one will probably be too. Is it possible to save this serial as a book that is just not yet published?
Anyway, this is a strange rule.

Ayshe | 3032 comments I can't delete it, unless staff or super-librarian decides to, it's safe.

idiffer | 34 comments Thanks, I will probably visit that thread/section.
So... what about the cover then?


message 6: by Ayshe (new)

Ayshe | 3032 comments Since it's not a book according to the GR definitions, I don't feel like adding it. Another librarian might think differently though. The author can also add it.

lethe | 13673 comments The Policies & Practices folder is here in the Librarians Group: https://www.goodreads.com/topic/group...

Since it is a cataloguing issue, I think this is a better place than the Feedback Group :)

Ayshe | 3032 comments But policy seems to be clear that they are not allowed and I guess mostly librarians will reply in this group in the same spirit, in the Feedback group he may find more supporters :)
