Arenda | 20008 comments Done.

We have a dedicated thread for these requests, that need a superlibrarian to merge them:

Ietrio | 44 comments Ok. It was not obvious. Because I have not intended to delete one book, just to merge the two as the same and not different editions.

Thank you Arenda.

lethe | 13676 comments Merging = deleting one duplicate edition so that one edition remains.

message 5: by Arenda (new)

Arenda | 20008 comments No problem. Feel free to ask, and usually starting a new thread is the best.

Isbn10 and isbn13 is actually the same isbn, and should not be on two different editions.

Different editions (different isbn/format/cover/translation) should be combined.
Identical editions = duplicates, should be merged = deleted.

When a book is shelved/reviewed by more than 5 users, only superlibrarians can merge them.
