Hi, I started using LibraryThing today (wonderful !!!) .. I have a problem: if I look for the books I recorded, it's like there are no books .. but there are !! Can you help me? I'm continuing to register my home library ... but if I can't use the "search" function I'd be sorry. Thanks!

Make sure 'all collections' is chosen in the upper left corner.

Also, it takes around 10 minutes for newly added books to be indexed and searchable. You can immediately see them in your catalogue, but the search picks up after indexing it

I started recording my books more than 5 hours ago ... still not seen ... not a few minutes. I don't know what the problem is. Try to do a search in the books I recorded and tell me if you can. Thank you

RESOLVED! now the "search" function works perfectly. Maybe it takes more than 10 minutes ... I think. Thank you.

>3 antoniogiglio: Your Books search indexing typically takes 10-15 minutes to capture newly added items. Sometimes longer if we're experiencing some server lag. You can sort by recently added items in Your Books by clicking on the "Entry date" column header to see your recently added books first.
