Subject: Unsure how to fix this - Other Versions

So usually if I see a problem on PBS, I'll either try to fix it myself or shoot someone who knows better than me an email. But I'm not sure what to do about this one:

I was looking at a book (http://www.paperbackswap.com/State-Deception-Power-Nazi-Propaganda/book/0896047148/) and saw it had some other versions listed... but three of the four other versions are completely different books. The ISBN is different for all of the incorrect versions and the only similarity I can see is that they're from the same publishing house.

So, in the future, how would I report this, to get these incorrect "other versions" taken off? Thanks guys!


Edited to remove the extra question marks - they were driving me crazy!

I reported it to one of the Data Approvers.

You can always send in Feedback through the Contact Us link, though when I have asked in the past about linked versions I was told that it couldn't be changed. Maybe something can be done now days.

Melanie is correct, we can only fix individual PBS listings, but we in the Data Corrections group can't fix the linking. The other versions are listed using an automated program. The site's administrators are aware of the linking problem some books have, but at this time it still isn't something that can be fixed as far as I'm aware. I'll contact them just in case there is something that can be done to correct this.

The team is looking at the linking for this book and hopefully will be able to fix this!

ETA:  Looks like they were able to remove the inappropriately linked books!
