This is an important question--do we want this to be a book based collection or a work based collection?

For example, I just came across a book called The Sinners that was banned in South Africa. The Italian translation (Peccatori delle Antille) was also banned. Do I add both editions to the catalog (book-based) or do I just enter it once (work-based).

I think I'm leaning towards work-based at the moment, but I don't have a strong opinion about it yet.

I'd like to see it as work-based but with comments as to why different translations were banned in different locations. Having multiple translations of the same book entered differently seems more confusing than necessary.

I would certainly go for work based, I think it has the potential to get really messy if we don't.

Alright, work based it is! Unless anyone has pressing objections.
