According to the book KEV format (defined here:
ttp://tinyurl.com/2psmkq) the max occurrence of the isbn key is 1. I'm
assuming that by extension that means that the rft.<m-key> (i.e.,
rft.isbn) form is also limited to one occurrence. So specifying
multiple ISBNs that way is a no go.
You can however specify multiple referent identifiers. From the KEV
Context Object format matrix (http://tinyurl.com/2r5hsc): "Multiple
instances of rft_id do not indicate multiple Referents, but rather
multiple ways to identify a single Referent"
So I *think* what you could do is this:
Also, I'd be remiss not to point you to a more authoritative list for
OpenURL questions: http://listserv.oclc.org/scripts/wa.exe?A0=OPENURL.
Although I'm sure there's plenty of overlap in interest/knowledge in
the subject between the lists.
