Searching a title record on the web is this easy: enter the ISBN of the book you want to catalogue (either by typing it or by scanning its barcode) and tick the online catalogus you want to query - if you select several catalogues, you have more chances of finding the record you are looking for. After some seconds, the application displays the corresponding record in the online catalogues.

Downloading title records is as simple as searching for them: select the title record's text, then click on the "Paste record" button.

Downloading records has never been so easy !

The catalogues that can be queried  

Query further catalogues

By default, the application can query a dozen online library or bookshop catalogues. But what if you'd like to query another catalogue? In this case, create your own query syntax and data conversion rules thanks to the editor integrated in the application. With help of the z39.50 and SRU protocols, you can access thousands of library catalogues worldwide.
