I have a list of several hundred book titles & corresponding authors,
comprising our State Library's book group titles, & am looking for
ways of putting these titles online in a way that would be useful to
librarians & patrons. Something along the lines of a LibraryThing
collection or Amazon wishlist.
Without ISBNs, however, the process could be very labor-intensive.
Any suggestions for how we could handle this as part of a batch process?
I realize that different manifestations of the same work will have
different ISBNs, so we'd be seeking any work in print format, ideally
the most commonly held.
The only thought I've had is to do a Z39.50 search using the author &
title Bib-1 attributes EG @and @attr 1=4 mansfield @attr 1=1003
Thanks for your thoughts,
