A BL (and non-BL) Librarian Note: Graphic Novels

Graphic Novel titles and series.


Graphic Novels are an exception to the rule that the series name should not appear in the title for the item.  The series should still be in the series field (though may necessitate an indicator since there are sometimes multiple versions of the printing, a HC collected edtion, an Omnibus, etc... that's a whole different issue).


Let's take a look at "Rat Queens, Volume 1: Sass & Sorcery".  "Sass & Sorcery" alone is not the name of the volume.


For consistency, we'd like to recommend that Volume be abbreviated to Vol. and that numbers be indicated with digits, not spelled out.


So in this example we'd have:

Title: Rat Queens,, Vol. 1: Sass & Sorcery

Series: Rat Queens

Position: 1
