EBSCOhost Collection Manager allows you to import a list of ISBNs and add them to a list or PDA for purchase. With Importing, you can add large lists of titles to lists quickly and easily.
To import a list of ISBNs into ECM:
Click Import List in the upper right of the Book landing page.
Enter your list of ISBNs in the field provided and click Continue. You can type ISBNs individually, or cut and paste a list into the box.
- ISBNs must be entered as comma-separated or on separate lines in the text area below.
- ISBNs must be numeric only, 13-digits, with a "978" or "979" prefix.
- Maximum of 1,000 ISBNs. Any ISBNs above the 1,000 title limit will be omitted. If you have more than 1,000 ISBNs to add, you can continue to add titles to a list in subsequent downloads.
If you entered invalid or incorrectly formatted ISBNs, ECM displays them. You can re-enter the numbers or click Continue.
Click Select List
Select to add the titles to a List or PDA and then select a list from the drop-down.
Enter a name for a new List/PDA and click Select List.
Verify your selections and click Continue. Or click an Edit link to modify your list of ISBNs or change the List/PDA to which you would like to add titles.
ECM matches your list of ISBNs with titles available from EBSCO and adds them to your list.
When ISBNs that you entered are not available, you are offered a one-time opportunity to download a spreadsheet of the unmatched ISBNs.
Note: Titles that are added to the list are added using your default or preferred access model. You can change your preferred access model from the Preferences menu.
Click the Imported List button to view your list or click Close to return to the ECM home screen.
