Essay = Article?

I’m cataloging a book with 200 short essays (2 pages or less) and I’m questioning using non-fiction to categorize each work. These were originally aired as brief commentaries on public radio, later collected in and published book form. I’m thinking article could be a better type. Thoughts?

I’ve used “article” for essays and added “essay” to notes. It’s not perfect, but it is perhaps the best solution at the moment.


OK, I’m going to request Essay be added in JIRA. I think it’s a useful enough distinction.
