Ashley (ashleybookly) | 936 comments Hi librarians!

I know we remove the "A Novel" subtitle but should we also remove "A Memoir" ?

e.g. https://www.goodreads.com/book/show/5...
ISBN: 1529384486

Thanks!

I thought we did (also "a biography" although I don't recall ever seeing that) but just checked & it isn't stated in the manual.

Elizabeth (Alaska) | 6591 comments Yes, I think all such generic "subtitles" are to be removed.
