NAME ^

WWW::Scraper::ISBN::PickABook_Driver - Search driver for the Pick-A-Book online book catalog.

SYNOPSIS ^

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

DESCRIPTION ^

Searches for book information from the Pick-A-Book online book catalog.

METHODS ^

search()

Creates a query string, then passes the appropriate form fields to the Book Depository server.

The returned page should be the correct catalog page for that ISBN. If not the function returns zero and allows the next driver in the chain to have a go. If a valid page is returned, the following fields are returned via the book hash:

  isbn          (now returns isbn13)
  isbn10        
  isbn13
  ean13         (industry name)
  author
  title
  book_link
  image_link
  thumb_link
  description
  pubdate
  publisher
  binding       (if known)
  pages         (if known)

The book_link, image_link and thumb_link all refer back to the Pick-A-Book website.
