In http://merlin.blogs.com/43folders/2004/09/request_a_libra.html a bookmarklet-generator is linked too that pulls book information off the current Amazon page and submits it to the specified online library catalogue so that you can easily request said book.

It's really quite cool.

Anyway, the one for Cambridgeshire County Libraries is:

javascript:var%20re=/([\/-]|is[bs]n=)(\d{7,9}[\dX])/i;if(re.test(location.href)==true){var%20isbn=RegExp.$2;void(win=window.open('http://ipac.camcnty.gov.uk'+'/ipac20/ipac.jsp?index=ISBN&term='+isbn,'LibraryLookup','scrollbars=1,resizable=1,location=1,width=575,height=500'))}

Livejournal unfortunately won't let me create a link to it; presumably because of scripting attacks and unfortunately, as you can see, it requires javascript...

That IS a very neat tool - I'm sure mtbc100 will make great use of it. Our library probably knows him by all the books he's requested for purchase in the past.
