Even if I could automate filling in a few more of these, I would be happy. I could scrape a catalog page, but that might be frowned upon. I could also download the free MARC files from LoC, but that's way too much. We (JHA) don't maintain a cataloging subscription to WorldCat (JHE - our parent org, I'm sure must). OpenLibrary appears to not have descriptions.
