The web service associates library catalog records from WorldCat with related resources based on ISBN. Submitting an ISBN retrieves a list of ISBNs for records related by an algorithm from OCLC, the primary organization managing professionally cataloged bibliographic records, along with selected metadata from those records. The linkages support "FRBRized" grouping of related editions, such as other expressions of the same work and manifestations of the same expression.
API methods get records and/or metadata for resources related to the one whose ISBN is submitted. Methods also support mapping of other books-related identifiers, such as xOCLCNUM and convert between 10- and 130-digit ISBNs.
The following is a list of libraries from ProgrammableWeb's Library Directory that matched your search term. Although there many different interpretations of the word "library" among software developers, ProgrammableWeb adheres to a specific definition so as to clearly distinguish libraries from SDKs and frameworks in a way that will facilitate clean search results. In ProgrammableWeb's parlance, the term "library" is strictly used to describe a platform-specific software tool that, when installed, results in the provisioning a specific API. Conversely, SDKs are exclusively for consuming APIs and Frameworks are agnostic to specific APIs. If you think a library, SDK, API, or other asset is missing from our directory, be sure to check our guidelines for making contributions to ProgrammableWeb.
