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 how-to and tutorial content that matched your search term. ProgrammableWeb's how-to content comes from two sources; full-blown tutorials that we publish ourselves and other highly relevant tutorials that we find elsewhere on the Web. This list represents on combination of both tutorial types and if you go to ProgrammableWeb's API University, you'll not only be able to find more, they are organized based on your role (API providers or developers who consumes APIs). If you know of a tutorial that would be of interest to the ProgrammableWeb community, we'd like to know about it. Be sure to check our guidelines for making contributions to ProgrammableWeb.
