Power Edit: Date Acquired

Recommend Site Improvements

I'm new to LibraryThing and I've been adding boxes of books at once. This has generally been a very fast process because I can add dozens of books to the same collection easily and I can PowerEdit the field for where I acquired the books, but not when.

The process slows down when I want to start adding other info to books, even when that info is the same for every title.

I know many people get boxes of books at one time from library sales, goodwill or other sources and it would be nice to be able to add the same Date Acquired to many books at once.

Agreed. This would be very useful.
