You just can't find the isbn and plug it into a simple url. No, you need to initialize a session first, and then plug the isbn into a simp +le url. Oh well. So this module initializes a session and redirects you to the right url. Or, you can just grab the data from the LOC and pre +sent it in whatever form you want. =head1 FUNCTIONS =over 4 =item \%hash z3950_data( $isbn ) Given an ISBN, return a reference to a hash with the data downloaded f +rom the Library of Congress. The keys to the hash are the data field name +s. =item $html z3950_html( $isbn ) Dump out the data from z3950_data as HTML. Sort of. It's just plain text with <pre> tags around it. =item $url z3950_url( $isbn ) The url that will get the LOC page for this ISBN. =back =cut
