questions:
How do you search the Internet to find a book when you don't know the ISBN number? We have a lot of older books that were printed before they were assigned an ISBN. When I demoed the program for the Librarian today she liked the ISBN look-up for downloading data but pointed out that that would only work with books that had an ISBN.
