This is a change proposal for Style/Recording and release group titles/Volume numbers, not an official guideline!

This guideline applies to Release Groups that are part of a Series. It does not apply to Release Titles, which should reflect what is used on the actual release.

When a release group is part of a Series labeled as volumes, separate the Volume Number from the Main Title by a comma like so:

"ReleaseTitle, Volume 2"

Example

"UK Space Techno, Volume 5"

"Café del Mar, Volumen Cinco"

Details

This guideline is a specification of the more general Series numbers guideline. See that page for principles and details.

Alternative names for volumes may be used, such as Tome, Book, Part, or their non-English equivalents.

  • Note that if the Main Title of a Release is just "Volume 1" or similar then this guideline should not apply!
  • Also note that the Abbreviations guidelines says that you should not use abbreviations in titles. So "Vol." should always be expanded to "Volume" (assuming the Release Language is English).
  • Also note that the Subtitle of a release of a series must be formatted according to the Subtitles guideline.
