How do you put a new title into the club. The book is not out yet...I have the title, isbn #, and the author. TIA.

just do a search by ISBN and that usually brings it up!

It is far better to let these books come into the system when they are properly assigned and released to the database compiler by the publishers. We have had to correct tons of titles due to people pushing books into the system before the database is properly updated. If you search for the book by title and ISBN, then wait a day and do it again, the system may go get the information. If it doesn't then the compiler hasn't gotten the complete listing yet, and pushing it thru, by methods used on here only serves to give the occasional incorrect book title and have people wishing for the wrong book.

Put the ISBN, title & author into the Advanced Search page, then save the search and run it every week or so, and eventually the system will get the complete listing, with description, measurements, image, and all, and it will all be totally correct.

What Sherry said (from a member on the wrong wishlist for months)

Thanks for your patience Veronica!!!!   Here's a thread discussing how some members nudge the PBS database to pull new releases into the system.
