I have a hardback of Paw Prints at Owl Cottage -IBSN 9780312577070- PBS search lists the title as "Paw TRACKS".

Amazon & Barnes and Noble have Paw Prints, same IBSN. It's a wishlist book according to IBSN and I'd like to post it.

Should I correct/edit when I do the search and the PBS info comes up?

The data edit team can't change titles.  You have to use the contact us link at the bottom of any page.  It took me over 6 months to get one fixed.  It helps if you do your own research to make sure that title was never used, then list everywhere you've checked.  If it's just an additional title, the data edit team can add your title as an aka.

Subject: updated thanks

Is it possible this is a case of one title in England, another in US?  That happens frequently.......often different covers too but same ISBN.

I just searched PBS for the ISBN 9780312577070 cited in the original post and the title shows as "Paw Prints at Owl Cottage". The author displays as Denis O'Connor, book type is hardcover,  publisher is Thomas Dunne Books, and publication date is 2013. Also, 7 members currently wishing. The listing does not have a cover image, however. I'll look for it and upload if I find one.

I did find an image for "Paw Prints as Owl Cottage" with ISBN 9780312577070 and have uploaded it to the system. Unfortunately, because a non-cover image is currently being displayed for this listing, it may take a while for the new image to display correctly.

Although images uploaded to the system to replace blue boxes will display correctly very quickly after they have been approved, images that are uploaded to replace incorrect, poor, or fake cover images may take anywhere from a few days to two weeks or more and even as much as six weeks before displaying correctly across all internet servers. After a replacement image has been approved and is in the PBS database, it must then be propagated and updated across internet servers before displaying consistently. The process may happen relatively quickly within a few days or may take a frustratingly long time during which the image may flip back and forth several times between the image being replaced and the new image.
