Across the whole of the Books and Borrowing site, we use the following data structure and terminology. All titles in our dataset are categorised on four levels: Works, Editions, Holdings and Volumes. A work is a text considered as a conceptual object or whole (such as Adam Smith’s Inquiry into the Nature and Causes of the Wealth of Nations). An edition is a particular physical printing of a work (such as the 1776 quarto edition of Adam Smith’s An Inquiry into the Nature and Causes of the Wealth of Nations printed in London for William Strahan, Thomas Cadell and William Creech). A holding is a copy of an edition (or in some cases multiple editions, as when pamphlets are bound together) held at one of our libraries (such the copy of the 1776 quarto edition of Adam Smith’s Wealth of Nations held by the Advocates Library). A volume is a part of a holding (such as volume 2 of the Advocates Library’s copy of the 1776 Wealth of Nations).

Book Genre

A a book holding may have multiple genres and 24220 genre classifications have been applied to 27603 book holding records at your selected libraries. The first visualisation shows the total number of book holdings we have catalogued from your selected libraries (we have only catalogued books that are actually borrowed, not the entire collection), divided into sections for genre, while the second visualisation shows the total number of borrowing acts we have catalogued, divided into sections for the genre of the associated book. The comparison between the two shows the relative popularity of genres. If all genres were borrowed equally then the two visualisations would be the same. What is interesting is when the visualisations differ, as this shows where a particular genre is more (or less) popular than another. In the visualisations, press on a genre's segment to perform a search for its associated borrowing records.
