I-Catalog Number

Postby imslp » Sun Oct 22, 2017 6:50 am

As some of you may have noticed, there is a new field in many work pages, the "I-Catalog Number". This is intended to serve as an automated catalog system, uniquely identifying works for a given composer. The catalog number is tied to a particular page, and will survive page moves. If a page moves to a different composer category, there is a particular logic that the system will follow in reassigning the number, but in any event it guarantees that the number is unique for a given composer however the page is moved.

Hopefully this will help especially in cases where a composer has no universally acknowledged catalog. Let me know of any questions/comments.
