We have a small library of slightly less than 1,000 books at this time but new books are added occasionaly. At the moment, all the details are held on an OpenOffice database but the data is a mess so we've refined the data and created a MySQL database and an online HTML form to enter relevant details. To make sure the data is always entered the same way, we want to use the API from isbndb.com to fill in the form.
The record fields are for ISBN, Book Title, Author(s), Publisher and Date of Publication.
We have search buttons for the ISBN and Book Title inputs to use either to retrieve the data from ISBNdb.
How do we attach the API to the search buttons that will retireve the relevant data and put it in the correct input fields of the form but still be able to hand fill if necessary?
