Dee (dwmichel) | 1 comments I think an "editor" field should be added as an alternative to "author" on the information regarding books. For example, historical anthologies, which historians use commonly, would be factually correct in that what is now termed as "authored" works, which is clearly not correct, would be changed to editor. Similarly, I think it may be beneficial for ", ed." to follow the editor's name on a regular search.

I imagine adding this option would be an easy change that would allow more factual correctness.

Debbie Moorhouse I agree that we need some way to distinguish editors from authors :).

We agree too. Adding more authors and roles (editor, illustrator, etc) is definitely on the todo list.
