How do you edit book data?  I thought there was a link to click, but I can't find it.

It's under the More Options button where the TBR button and a few other things are.

To clarify Mary's excellent answer, but to make it really simple:  It should be on the Book details page (the page you get to when you click on the title link) at the top left side, bottom button, More Options.  Clicking that will bring up a dropdown list of other links, and near the bottom is the Edit Book Data link, which is the one you want.

You can also click on Member Tools at the bottom left side of any page and click on the Edit Book Data link from there as well.  (The Image Upload link is there too, called Upload Book Covers.)

A suggestion to help the data team, when yu make a correction, try to get as much more information as you can when you edit a book. The approvers will take the time to finish your submission if you did not. Other things to be particularly aware of are number of pgs, description, publication year, and other things. If someone edits the weight, then the next person comes along and just edits the number of pgs, then the next person wants to put in the description, that sends that book 3 times to the approvers. So, most approvers will take the time to finish an edit submission when it comes thru the first time.

So, if you really want to help, add as much as you can when yu change that weight :)
