David, I've added these links today and would like confirmation from you if the information provided is just what is needed to update the spreadsheets. Once confirmed, we can add a template in the first post that a volunteer can copy and paste to report their work. In my view, there is not much sense everyone having to reinvent the wheel.

Michele,

I would include either the author name field or the book name as we link them separately and into separate spreadsheets; 2 similar versions of the template.

Michele,

Thank you for the updates. If you run across something that needs to be updated on the Librivox Catalog or Author pages, please highlight so I don't miss it.
