General help for editors

Articles in Lemopedia can be added and edited by all registered users. There are three basic kinds of articles:

  • editions: bibliographical records presenting specific publications of Lem's books in all languages
  • lemology: articles dealing with authors of books dedicated to Lemology and their works
  • elements: a dictionary listing Stanislaw Lem's literary output (topics, ideas, main characters)

editions

To add new bibliographical record:

  1. Search whether the edition in question is missing from the Lemopedia resources (preferably by entering the title and language of publication).
  2. If you have not found the edition, create a new page:
    • in the search box enter the title of the new page according to this example (title should be in English): Title Language Publisher DateOfPublication (for example: Star Diaries German Insel 1961)
    • select "create new page"
  3. In the new page paste the following template:
