Vitali (vitalinew) | 87 comments Hi! I hope that I am posting this in the right place.
I merged several profiles of Arthur Conan Doyle and I am asking for help - because there are too many books to combine. I also merged profiles of Johann Wolfgang von Goethe and I am not sure how to combine editions of "Faust". Could someone help?

This Is Not The Michael You're Looking For | 949 comments This is definitely the right place. Arthur Conan Doyle is generally difficult because there are so many similarly named variants of story collections and Goethe is a nightmare for non-English speakers. Also, many of their books/editions predate ISBN which also complicates things quite a bit.

I've added both to a general list of author's needing work. Hopefully some enterprising librarians will make some inroads soon.
