Mattias (mkling) | 37 comments I am sort of new on this site so bear with me here... I have read most material on how to add books, editions of exitings books, and how to combine editions. I think I got the gist of it, and made a first try.

I manually added a new book (swedish edition of The Memory Chalet by Tony Judt - "Minneshärbärget"). Then combined this with the previously existing english editions.

Like this:

It looks good, but before I do any more of this, could someone more knowledgable please have a look at my work? This is correct?

Zoran | 3 comments I'm in the same boat as Mattias. I was trying to add another edition to a book by Michael Koryta "Tonight I Said Goodbye" and thought I did it right, only to realise that I wasn't able to link it to the previous editions (ie. the same book that exists in the database)? Any suggestions?

Asking here works. I combined them for you.

Zoran | 3 comments Thanks! I'm assuming only Librarians can do this?
