I am working on a set of books: a main student textbook and 5 ancillary workbooks. I am having trouble identifying what the title, subtitle, and edition are and which information should go in the ancillary workbooks' title segment.
There are no title pages, and the copyright pages do not have any information about the title, so I am pulling the info from the covers. I have attached a pdf of the covers. All of the books but one (of course, there's always an exception) include the following information:
TPS (publisher) Creative Science Curriculum with STEM, Literacy and Arts Texas Edition Student Edition Grade 3
Would I be right to format the main textbook title segment as:
TPS Creative Science Curriculum with STEM, Literacy and Arts Texas Edition; Student Edition: Grade 3
or would it be better as:
Creative Science Curriculum with STEM, Literacy and Arts; Texas Edition: Grade 3 Student Edition
Also, do the words "Fall into" seem like they should be part of the title or like they are just creative cover wording?
BF 2.4.3.f says "The primary book title is used as the subtitle for the secondary books." How much of the main textbook's title is repeated? For instance, would the first workbook be formatted:
Amelia Rose Explores TPS Creative Science Curriculum with STEM, Literacy and Arts Texas Edition; Student Edition: Grade 3
Amelia Rose Explores; Student Edition: Grade 3 TPS Creative Science Curriculum with STEM, Literacy and Arts Texas Edition
or something else??
The "Science Is a Verb!" workbook does not repeat the curriculum title, but it is clearly part of the set. Should I include the main title on the title page even though it is missing from this cover?
Several transcribers I know have this series at different grade levels. I would suggest that you ask the agency how they want this handled. All of the options you suggested are correct; the trick here is to determine which is the main title and which is the series title and that may depend on how the agency has determined that. Ask them and please post the answer here.
I am currently mentoring some transcribers who have this series at Grade 7 and they have chosen your second option.
