OCLC Offers ISBN “Concordance”

OCLC Offers ISBN “Concordance”. OCLC's Office of Research is offering, experimentally, a service that looks up submitted ISBNs in their FRBRized WorldCat, and returns other ISBNs associated with the same work. E.g.: http://labs.oclc.org/xisbn/0441172717 (the ISBN of Dune). This is something we've needed for a long time to improve automated searching in virtual union catalogues and ILL systems. I hope the service takes off. [/usr/lib/info]
