Looking up… stuff… via ISBNs

Years ago, I started to maintain a list of services that could take an ISBN in a URL to look up stuff about a book… OUseful ISBN Playground:

I really should update this service, so if you know of any online web services that take an ISBN as a URL argument, or maybe a Linked Data SPARQL request that searches around ISBNs, please let me know via a comment to this post, and I’ll have a go at updating the ISBN Playground:-)

  1. Wikipedia:ISBN
    “The MediaWiki software automatically recognizes inline International Standard Book Numbers (ISBNs); for example: the wikitext ISBN 978-0-12-345678-9 becomes ISBN 978-0-12-345678-9 which corresponds to Special:BookSources/9780123456789. (This is a form of WikiMagic.)”
