[bksvol-discuss] Re: Can't fix author during check-in

The search function is not case-sensitive. Doesn't matter which case you use on 
the letters, Bookshare will find whatever you're looking for regardless of the 
letters' case in either the search field or in the metadata.

I wonder if one were to search for an author, say 
mccarthy, would it come up with two different authors McCarthy (with an 
upper-case m and c, put in before the changes) and Mccarthy (with a lower-case 
c 
put in after the change)?
 
Easy to check, so I'll do the search next time I'm 
signed on, unless someone else has an answer.

Hi Christina, 

Editing the metadata does not help. When the title  and author are displayed, 
the first letter is capitalized, and the rest are  lower-case. Most of the 
time, this is fine, but for names like McCarthy or  McPhee, the second 
capitalized letter is switched to lower case. I have tried  fixing names like 
those myself any number of times, but the display is  persistent with its rule 
of only the first letter being capped. I'm hoping  Engineering will allow 
mid-capitals on titles and authors one of these days.  They have more pressing 
matters to attend to, at the moment. 

Carrie

Hello, Tracy.
Did you  click on the link that says "Edit Metadata?"  That will allow you to  
change the author, title, copyright date and holder, and the  ISBN.
