This Node.js SDK is made to interface with the ISBNdb.com API to retrieve information on books. ISBNdb.com's remote access application programming interface (API) is designed to allow other websites and standalone applications use the vast collection of data collected by ISBNdb.com including data including nearly 1,800,000 books and almost 3,000,000 library records.
