Alwyn | 7 comments Hello,

I have no librarian status, but I wanted to add a new edition of the following book: http://www.goodreads.com/book/show/72... . I pressed the button 'add new edition', but he created for an unknown reason a new book: http://www.goodreads.com/book/show/13... . Please, can someone combine them for me? Furthermore I would like to know what I did wrong and how you can add a new edition, so I can do it the next time by myself.
Thanks in advance!

Alwyn

New editions do not get combined automatically. This needs to be done manually by librarians.

Alwyn | 7 comments Thanks. So non-librarians can add new books, but no new editions? Doesn't seem very logical to me; why does the option 'add new edition' exist at all?

It prepopulates some of the fields.
