Bowker Book Metadata Service API

Bowker Book Metadata Service
The service provides descriptive information about books and other media resources maintained by the publisher of Books in Print, a comprehensive listing of currently available publications. Data include bibliographic description (author, title, ISBN, publication date, etc.) as well as cover image, published reviews, table of contents, and publisher's price. API methods accept search criteria as author or contributor name, title, ISBN, UPC, and a range of other identifying values. Methods then return data specified in the request for matching resources, including bibliographic description, availability status, binding type, intended market or audience, etc.
