NAME ^

WWW::Scraper::ISBN::LOC_Driver - Searches Library of Congress's online catalog for book information.

SYNOPSIS ^

See parent class documentation (WWW::Scraper::ISBN::Driver)

REQUIRES ^

Requires the following modules be installed:

WWW::Scraper::ISBN::Driver
HTTP::Request::Common
LWP::UserAgent

DESCRIPTION ^

Searches for book information from the Library of Congress's online catalog. May be slower than most drivers, because it must first create a session and grab a session ID before perforiming a search. This payoff may be worth it, if the catalog is more comprehensive than others, but it may not. Use your best judgment.

METHODS ^

search()

Starts a session, and then passes the appropriate form fields to the LOC's page. If a valid result is returned, the following fields are available via the book hash:

  isbn
  author
  title
  edition
  volume
