Abcdarian | 22234 comments ' Arvensa Editions https://www.goodreads.com/author/list... looks like one that staff could remove; seems to be listed second in each case.

Also Arvensa Editions ' https://www.goodreads.com/author/show... and Arvensa Editions https://www.goodreads.com/author/show...

Philip (burnnerman) | 5913 comments #1 - I believe a handful of those are actually valid, especially the last 3, still does not hurt to look through them all.

They're usually considered valid as a last resort - if you can find an author or list of contributors, that's preferable. Unlike standard cataloguing :)

Abcdarian | 22234 comments Re message #8: One of the 3 Arvensa profiles is gone. I must have edited after the first one was noticed; the other two are still there for staff.

The other 2 are pending now.

Lorenz
Lorenz Books
Lorenz Children's Books
Lorenz Editors

Associated with this, some books have Marion Elliot added incorrectly as author or editor, but not all. Elliot also writes books herself so record is not eligible for a mass delete.

Abcdarian | 22234 comments Wordsworth Wordsworth gone; the one book left on Wordsworth is by a Rev. Dr. Wordsworth. Though I've found books there by the poet before.

Got these 3.

Thanks :) I'll make sure any future ones are completely non-primary.

Merged under Parks Canada and combined editions. Not going to find named authors for those I suspect. It's a government thing.


message 36: by Emy (new)

Emy (emypt) | 5036 comments Yeah, always going to be a fair few like that, but sometimes you can get lucky with a compiler or editor.

Emy (emypt) | 5036 comments Some of these may be legitimately by the corporate body, but most seem to have a named author or editor, who should be the person credited here.

Faculty of Advocates (Edinburgh
Faculty of Advocates (Scotland)
Faculty of Advocates
Faculty of Advocates Scotland
Faculty of Advocates (Scotland) Library

E.g. from one I'm working on -
The various copies of the Catalogue of the Printed Books in the Library of the Faculty of Advocates were edited by Samuel Halkett et al.

Abcdarian | 22234 comments I thought this would be a corporate author, but it's a claimed profile-??
https://www.goodreads.com/author/show...


message 42: by Emy (new)

Emy (emypt) | 5036 comments Publisher claim I guess... I guess get the books to All Secondary and then contact Staff.


message 43: by Philip (new)

Philip (burnnerman) | 5913 comments #3 - All the Profiles no longer exist, so you can cross that one off the list.

Emy (emypt) | 5036 comments #43 Cheer Philip, editing now.

Librarians have no control over approvals of Goodreads Author status. If you are having a problem with yours, you'll need to use the Contact Us link on the Help page. However, requests to claim corporate authors are not usually approved. As you can see from this thread, we do our best to attribute books to individuals, rather than to corporate authors.

Liz V. (wwwgoodreadscomlizv) | 38785 comments There are numerous books, such as Cambridge Student Guide to Macbeth, with "Cambridge Student Guide" in the title twice--with parenthetical "(Cambridge Student Guides)".
