Feature: related editions

March 8, 2007


BookMooch now can look up related editions, using data from thingISBN, and OCLC’s xISBN.

You can see it at work here:

as well as a link to “related editions” on the book details page, ie:

Some of the data from OCLC is way off, for example all the Dilbert and Trudeau humor books in my wishlist:
those aren’t related editions, but OCLC reports them as related. However, it usually gets things right.

For the time being, I’m not having email notifications take related editions into account, because the related edition info doesn’t seem reliable enough for that.
