Debbie's Spurts (D.A.) Pretend you want to write a book review (or edit an existing review), at bottom of that review screen click for more options and there's a choice to add metadata.

Or, if you are not a librarian nor the book's author, if you try to edit a book's details all you can see is the metadata info and on that screen you can choose to add metadata (make sure you are clicking to add for that particular book and not to add metadata to your books shelved which starts pulling up other books you shelved but never added metadata to...)

Debbie's Spurts (D.A.) If screenshots help, here that is visually:

1. Go to add or edit a review.

2. Go to more options.

3. Edit Metadata.

Debbie's Spurts (D.A.) The librarians group is really for specific book issues. You may have better luck if you need more answers on metadata posting in the feedback or author feedback groups which are for site issues. Or emailing goodreads staff at
