I found it the other day and started checking those authors. But I had an issue with books that had multiple authors. When the book would come up, sometimes it would combine the multiple author names over the fields available for first, middle and last names. There didn't seem to be a way to correctly split them up or even add more correct authors in, at least on that particular page.

Are there any folks out there that uses this? Successfully??

This used to be on the bottom of the page.  And I did it often, filling in time while waiting.  Such as for the one hour hold.  Now it has been moved over under tools.  And I never think about doing it.  I personally think that was a very poor change.

When I did it, I'd often skip the multiple authors as the process wasn't clear.  Of course, there were tons of others to clean up.  It's not like the database is going to be clean and sparkly any time soon.
