Elizabeth (Alaska) | 7014 comments With Library in the search box, and author ticked.

Some entries will be obvious and can be quickly corrected by moving the "author" to the edition field. Some can just be deleted because they are already in the publisher field. Others will require research.

Renske | 11434 comments This profile is a large source of such entries https://www.goodreads.com/author/show...
It is only listed as secondary author, never as primary, so I think Rivka would be able to delete (I remember something long ago such kind of profile was deleted.)

Createspace is listed as publisher, but I don't think it is worth the effort to change it to 'The Perfect Library' as it are 14,758 works.

I'll see what we can do. The tool they made for me is timing out (not too surprising, as it has over 15,000 editions all told).

I have been working on The Perfect Library. It has been the source of many works that need work. It used to be over 15,100 works.

EDIT: It also has many primary authors that are not the correct published name, and, in researching, I have been able to merge other profiles with the correct one.

A dev has killed it. Note: books it was on as an author will probably still come up for a while when searching for "library".

You mean you deleted this author? I was using it, though. It was a fabulous resource for finding authors that were wrong.
