Thanks for the reply.

Would It cause a problem if I add it to the author field?
As in

White, E.B.; Thurber, James (illustrator)

Same with editors, translators, etc.

I've added text to indicate that is the preferred author format.

Not sure what to do about illustrator and other contributors. For compilations (anthologies), I usually place the editor as the author. I doubt we would add an illustrator search option, so the description is probably the best place. Any opinions on this?

I have the same questions - I just did my first upload and used
For a single author - surname1, forename1
For multiple authors - surname1, forename1; surname2, forename2; etc

but was wondering about where to include illustrator or other contributors.

Assistance for the NOOB's?

Format for Authors on Upload File
(posted on: May 07, 2010 at 13:34:51)

 
I'm preparing the first of my upload files. After toying with UIEE I opted for Scribblemonger Tab Separated format to get my inventory loaded as soon as possible.

What is the preferred format for the content in the author field?

I'm assuming:

For a single author - surname1, forename1
For multiple authors - surname1, forename1; surname2, forename2; etc

Also, what about illustrators, editors etc where they might be important?
