Bristol Library Lookup Bookmarklet

A bookmarklet to help find books using the Online Public Access Catalogue at Bristol Library Service:

  1. Drag this bookmark(\d{7,9}[\dX])/i;if(re.test(location.href)==true){var%20isbn=RegExp.$2;void(win=window.open() to your links toolbar.

Instructions from Jon Udell’s LibraryLookup:

After you’ve “installed” your bookmarklet in this way, you can look up books at your local library. Let’s say you’re on a book-related site (Amazon, BN, isbn.nu, All Consuming, possibly others), and a book’s info page is your current page. (Specifically: its URL contains an ISBN. Choose a hardcover edition for best results) You can click your bookmarklet to check if the book is available in your local library. The bookmarklet will invoke your library’s lookup service, feed it the ISBN, and pop up a new window with the result.
