ISBN Scanner

The ISBN scanner is available when editing a book entry.  Select New -> ISBN Scanner or the ISBN field to receive the option for scanning the ISBN.

There are two ISBN scanners available: Apple and ZBar.  

  • Apple
  • ZBar

Book Crawler only works with ISBN numbers, not UPC.  If you receive a message like this: "Try again. Cannot retrieve ISBN from xxx: UPC-A" then you are scanning a UPC code, not an ISBN code.  In most cases, there will be another bar code that you can scan.  Try checking the inside cover of the book to see if there is one there.
