Ed Erwin | 73 comments I think I made a mistake editing a 2-in-1 book, but I'm not clear on the policy. The librarian manual says that we should not combine 2-in-1 books but doesn't really say how to treat them. If there is one single book with one single ISBN, but it has different contents by different authors when you flip it over, then should that get two entries or one?

Trying to search the discussions for the phrase "2-in-1" is futile since the search engine converts it to "2 in 1" and returns 1000s of results.

My original question, with the book link is here:

I'm sorry if I made a mistake and would like advice to fix it.

Ok. Thanks. I guess I didn't mess it up much, then. I may try to improve the title or description later.
