How to add the book using the title or author search?

If our auto cataloguing feature (search by ISBN) does not return results it does not mean that the book is not listed in the source catalogue:

  • sometimes there is another edition of the book with different ISBN number.
  • sometimes the book is very old and does not have ISBN number.
  • sometimes invalid ISBN numbers are entered into the search box (ISBN has to be 10 digit or 13 digit number, only digits, no other characters).

I see where you can add a book using the ISBN, but what if we don't know the ISBN (e.g book is not in front of us). Is there a way to add the book using the title or author? And getting a list of books and select the ones that we want to add into the library from that list?

I have used a small app on my iPhone called BookBuddy that is excellent in this way for adding books. Can you add the same type of feature into your application?

Answer: Our auto cataloguing feature is finding the exact book that you would like to catalogue (ISBN). We do not provide the search by title and author because the result would list too many items. Browsing through this list and deciding which item represents the correct solution would be a tedious task.
