Question Duplicate Books - Any way to use Claibre itself

is there away to use a plugin or search to look for only books that share more than 1 of the same name of pic used for covers? My thought is that if you have 2 same books, pics are prob called the same. Then you could just delete one to catch the duplicate....

Would this be possible? faster than just flipping through them all...

Thanks

All the books share the same name for the cover.

(ID'ing the cover inside a package is way way difficult)

Click the colum header for Title, then Author That will group some next to each other (Of course, either Author or Title variants will not line up)
ISBN matching is way iffy

one issue i had was a lot of duplicates with Author labeled

FirstName LastName
and the dup
LastName, FirstName

just fixing that made combining a bunch a lot faster as they were now next to each other

Another was Titles and Author switched, a quick swap via bulk edit, helped with that.
