Books not added to Overcat

these three book were added to LT using manual adding method.
But we can`t find them unless we have the exact URL.
Searching by ISBN/ Title didn`t work. Overcat database was checked.
Other books may have the same problem, but I tested mentioned ones only.


I`m unable to add these books to my personal account (ashraf21c).. When I click (Add to your books) it directs me to that page we use to add books from sources.. and no source works (including Overcat, that usually includes books added by members)

Overcat only adds from library (external source) searches. It does not add from manual additions

The only sources for Add Books are Amazon and certain libraries. Overcat includes results of successful library searches (and a few dumps of records from libraries if I remember correctly) not manual entries. So if the book has only been entered on LT manually your out of luck.
