I see "Orchard, Bernard, M.A. (Cantab.)".

Also, I make the author(s) = author(s) sort.
Quote from: fdsia8ds0 on May 27, 2024, 02:02:37 PMI also saw, for instance, both Benedict XVI and Joseph Ratzinger as two different authors: is this simply based on the time of the publication?
Yes.
Quote from: fdsia8ds0 on Today at 12:28:57 PMSo do you prefer to omit prefixes?
Yes.

As I said, earlier entered authors generally had prefixes.

So? Priests are eternally priests.

Interestingly, it appears that multiple cases like St. Liguori & St. Grignion de Montfort, as well as Bernard Orchard, have identical 'name' and 'sort name', i.e. their names are listed as Surname, ...

Quote from: fdsia8ds0 on May 27, 2024, 11:18:04 AMOne of my biggest questions in particular was whether titles should be used in author names. Upon some searches, it seems like St. is when applicable, but no ecclesial titles like Fr., Card., or the like are used, except for Pope.
Is this accurate?
Initially, I did put St., Cdl. or Card., Fr., Sr., etc., but then I dropped it. I kept "Pope" to distinguish real popes from anti-popes.
I would say don't include any authors' titles.
Religious order abbreviations, academic, and other suffixes are generally preserved.

I see, thank you. So do you prefer to omit prefixes?
I may do so on my own library if so, to keep it consistent, though I have seen St. many times, and just now, a Rev. (maybe mistaken or an outlier?) in the Isidore library (perhaps a bit of an odd example, but Pranatis, who is interestingly so-titled as an outlier, given that he was defrocked).

Thanks again

Good day,

I have been building up a digital library of books I've been meaning to read---much of the content overlapping with what one may find here. Things seem to be well-organized in the Calibre library, so I was wondering whether there were specific rules used in tagging/naming/sorting the files, so that I may do likewise?

One of my biggest questions in particular was whether titles should be used in author names. Upon some searches, it seems like St. is when applicable, but no ecclesial titles like Fr., Card., or the like are used, except for Pope.
Is this accurate?

Also, is there a chat for this sort of thing, or just the forum? Thank you!

(P.S.: it appears, however, that postnomials are used)

Quote from: Geremia on March 11, 2024, 02:26:23 PMThe various archives are now on the Interplentary File System (IPFS). See the "IPFS" links in the banner above.
I've removed this. IPFS takes up too much bandwidth.
Quote from: palisadehealer on April 30, 2021, 08:19:26 PMI found this on Wikipedia: "Contrary to Library Genesis and Sci-Hub, not much is known about Z-Library in terms of its operation, management, commercial status and mission statement. Notably, Z-Library doesn't open its full database to the public."
LibGen does seem better. Its books are on the IPFS.
