annob | 1561 comments Renske, since the book doesn't come up in a search with the name on the cover (V Knox), does that mean 'V. Knox' has to be added to the author field along with the full name?

I never quite grasp the 'encompass' name rule. :)

It isn't my experience, but according to staff, searching by initial should be enough to find the full name: https://www.goodreads.com/topic/show/...

Thank you lethe, it's eactly this which causes me to struggle with the rule - that search come up with zero matches after the change. But your example makes it clear that it's ok to replace the initials-only given name with the longer versions. Maybe the search function changed behaviour at some point after 2015?

Emily, good point. This punctuation behaviour I knew about but it's always good to mention it know and then to spread the awareness. :)
