Hi Jamie and everyone!

I forgot to do this before sending the last message.

I used the advanced search engine again and searched for Donald R. Gallo. I got two results:

Showing 1
 2 of 2 results

Donald R. Gallo

On the Fringe
Donald R. Gallo

That answered my question that these are the only two books of his in the collection.

No. It's an author of some neat kid's books. I want to see which ones are in the collection. Usually I can get a list of books with that author's name, if there are any. If there are more than one author with that last or first name, I can click on the correct name and get a list of all of the books by that one author. Then I can check my library to see which ones I can get to fill in the gaps.

But when I put in Gallo or "Gallo" into the search box, or in the advanced search in the author box, I still get way too many results and most of them aren't even an author with Gallo in the name. I did find a Donald R. Gallo but oddly enough, his name isn't in the combo box under authors. So I don't see how the new search is that great when it isn't even that accurate.

I guess the only book I'm going to work on tonight is Skippyjon Jones does something (I forget which one I got) because I know when I searched BEFORE the disastrous improvement that there were none in the collection. I did Skippyjon Lost in Spice which is now in the collection but a few days ago none of the others were.

I'm not scanning anything else until I can know for sure what I want to work on isn't in the collection.
