hken | 4 comments Hi fellow librarians,

Could you please help me with the below issue?

This book (Book1 by Author1)
https://www.goodreads.com/book/show/2...)

was wrongly listed on the page of this author (Author2)
https://www.goodreads.com/author/show...

since two authors have the same name.

I removed Book1 from the list of books by Author2 by adding a space inside the name of Author1 in Book1's data (as instructed in the librarian manual).

Book 1 was removed, but then another edition of the book (Book2) appeared in its place in the list of books of Author2:

https://www.goodreads.com/book/show/1...

Book2 doesn't even have Author1 in its authors list..

Not sure what i did wrongly..

Thanks
Ken

Michael Korleone (michaelkorleone) | 3881 comments It's a caching issue and will resolve itself in sometime. You can notice that the book is removed from author2's profile if you check the full list of works -

Book2 no longer appears on Author2's page either.
All's good now.
