Grim, I'm not sure what the "shelve it" button brings over from Amazon, but I'm guessing it's probably all of the important stuff - isbn, title, author... maybe publisher/date but I've seen Amazon records that don't have this, so maybe not.
If you add books and include all the information you have, you're doing better than about half the other BL'ers.
The people that make new books adds tough for the librarians are the ones that add books with only the title and author and cover. They leave everything else blank. And it's not that there are a heap of people who do this, but the ones that do, add a lot
of books. The other thing that makes adds (and edits) hard are when people use GoodReads as a source: GR stopped being a reliable and accurate source soon after Amazon bought them and changed the rules for record keeping.
