MissJessie | 874 comments Ingram updated dozens or maybe more books, mainly on Jan 22, by adding an additional author which is the SAME author as the first one. Consequently, there are pages and pages of books with the author listed twice.

There must be a way for the PTB to automate the removal of such duplicate authors; it's a tremendous amount of work to do each one, one at a time.

Additionally, they overwrote corrected authors, who had had honorifics such as Phd or whatever removed, and returned said titles to the bookpage. Is there any way to undo this mess other than one at a time?

HELP !!!

That was part of the transition from Amazon, so it's unlikely to repeat.
