Help Improve Series from Library Data
Help improve LibraryThing's series. Please read the directions before making changes.
"Help Improve Series from Library Data" uses data from hundreds of millions of library records to suggest works that might belong to the series, but aren't now part of it.
What is this for? To help members improve the LibraryThing series system, created by members over more than ten years.
LibraryThing's series system differs in many ways from how libraries keep track of series. This is intentional. You can read more about why here. But libraries know a lot about series. By combining what LibraryThing and libraries know, LibraryThing can come up with suggestions for works to add to LibraryThing series. Sometimes the suggestions can be taken as-is and sometimes with modifications. At other times, they point to problems with LibraryThing data, such as combination issues.
How do I use this? To add a work to a series, go to the work page and add it under "Common Knowledge." You will also want to click on the LibraryThing series, to check for ordering conventions, etc.
Gray text are different, library-assigned series names
