Recently Added books not showing up in catalog

sep 9, 2017, 5:30 pm


I can see that I recently added over a dozen books but they are not showing up in my catalog--not in Tiny Cat nor in "Your books" in Library Thing. When I searched one of the titles on the site, the record said that we own it. Can you help? Thanks.

Are you searching in All collections or in Your Library? The last few books you added are only in the View Online (Links) collection. They won't show up if you search Your Library.

Incidentally, you also have not chosen to include the "View Online (Links)" collection within your TinyCat. You can set which collections you want to include on your TinyCat from your Basic Settings page here: If you include the collection in your TinyCat, you should be able to search that collection within TinyCat.

I have the same problem and view online links is selected. Also, the scrolling bar at the bottom of my front page of TinyCat library shows images of the recently added books and if you click on the image, it will take you to the listing to check out the book. BUT when you type the title in the search bar, the book will not show up.

>4 TSDHSLiteracyroom: Please give a specific example of a book that's not showing up. "View Online (Links)" referred to in >3 kristilabrie: is the name of a specific collection in UnityChurch's library, and they did not have that collection set to be included in their TinyCat. Make sure the books you've added recently are in a collection you've elected to include in your TinyCat, as described in >3 kristilabrie:.

Same thing happening to me!

Hi, I just sent two messages via email to Kristi about this same problem. I can't go any further in my collection till this is resolved. Please Help. This just started today. It was working fine up to yesterday. In the posts above you mentioned "View Online (Links)" in Tiny Cat...where is that?? Robin

>4 TSDHSLiteracyroom: Help, please! How did you fix this problem? Robin

>6 CBCketchikanlibrary: Are you searching for books in your catalog and you don't see them? or are you looking at your list of books sorted by entry date and you don't see them? I see three books added to your catalog today, do you see them?

Catalog search can sometimes take some time to catch new books (up to a few hours, maybe) but you should be able to see books immediately if you sort your catalog by entry date

I see three books added yesterday. They show up in catalogue search and in TinyCat search.

If books don't immediately show up in search, this resolves if you give it time. It can even take a few days for a new work to show up in site search. This is normal. Indexing takes time.

>7 CBCketchikanlibrary: LibraryThing staff don't usually work weekends. I'll look for your emails, thanks for your patience!

Redigeret: feb 4, 2023, 2:21 pm

We have recently (Jan. 17) added a number of books which appear in a Recently Added listing but do not appear when searched for. Please help. I understand you don't work weekends.

And sorry if the answer appears elswhere!

>12 sjac: Please give us some titles.

feb 5, 2023, 12:01 pm

>12 sjac: I'm counting 23 books added to your library on Jan 17. (I found them by adding Entry Date to a view then sorting by entry date.) Did you add more than this?
If so, what titles are you not finding?

>14 gilroy: Having done that much, try to search for Gazelles, Baby Steps & 37 Other Things: Dave Ramsey Taught Me About Debt in sjac's catalogue. "No books found."

feb 5, 2023, 2:14 pm

>15 MarthaJeanne: That's the first one on the list. I find it fine. Also, I searched for all fields.
Many of the recent 100 books don't have tags.

Redigeret: feb 5, 2023, 2:23 pm

But did you try to find it in search? I find it in the list, but not in search.

feb 5, 2023, 3:06 pm

Yes, I tried it in search
I found it

If any search/es are failing, I really need to know the search term/s you're using rather than the title/s you're missing from the search/es. Also, make sure you're searching "All collections" from the Collections drop-down menu in "Your books" (the catalog page), and searching all fields! Hope this helps.

When we make edits to a book in Library Thing, they do not show up in Tiny Cat. Why does this happen and can we fix it. Peg

>20 NFMeeting: Instead of a sweeping question like that, we need specifics. "I edited this book (with URL) to my catalogue by changing ——— at such and such a time, and now I don't see the change in TinyCat."

Hi there, the last 155 books I have added to my collection since Sept 23 seem to have disappeared. This was all correct up until this year so these have disappeared our of my collection but they are there in the 'recently added' column at the Add books page.

I'm seeing everything in your catalog (looking at "All collections" on "Your books") here:, sorted by the most recent Entry date. Can you see your records?

jan 19, 10:14 am

I added 6 books today to the database and I can clearly see them there but they are not coming up on the TinyCat tab at all. I am going to continue adding several hundred books to the database and hope that the link gets fixed. It sounds like I am not the only one so may not need a fix at my end.

>24 meditatio: You probably needed to wait a little longer for your records to get indexed into your catalog. I see the last 6 records you added right in your TinyCat's Homepage animated cover display:

Let me know if you're having more extensive trouble!
