Update 16: June 10, 2011

Hi all! We've been making some changes to the Series Binder over the last month or so.

First, we have decided to rename the Series Binder, "SeriesCAT," which is still a work-in-progress. One thing we *have* gotten done with that is that we've gotten two new URLs, seriescat.org and seriescat.com, that both point to the main page of the wiki. We're hoping that will be a little easier for people to remember off the top of their heads.

Second, Blake at LISHost has upgraded the wiki software. If you notice any problems, please be sure to send an email to seriesbinder@gmail.com.

Third, I created three new categories today: Teen, Dystopia, and Postapocalyptic Fiction.

Film and TV Productions

A greater effort is being made it list the film and/or TV adaptations of books in the series binder. If only one film or TV show has been produced, feel free to provide a link to the Internet Movie Database's entry on the film or TV show under the External Links heading, and make a note of the adaptation and production year under the "Film Productions" or "TV Productions" heading. If more than one adaptation exists, please list the links individually under the "Film Productions" or "TV Productions" heading. Note the year in parenthesis after the link. See the following entries for examples:

Additionally, if you are aware of any audio productions of a series, list them under a "Audio Productions" heading. See Series of Unfortunate Events for an example.
