Hi Adam,

Many thanks for the Metaproxy filters suggestion. We implemented an XSLT to convert ISBN 13 to 10 and got it working with the Metaproxy query_rewrite filter.

Hey Deepak,

there is no facility for that in Zebra AFAIK.

For Metaproxy there is a filter conversion facility which allows total rewrite of RPN/Type-1 queries.. That could also match up your ISBN search and convert as necessary.. Probably not pretty but doable.


For inspiration, you could look at:

We have recently moved our z3950 service from Voyager to Zebra. One main search functionality that Voyager offered was the ability to auto convert an ISBN 13 to ISBN 10 and vice versa. Is there an option in Zebra or in Metaproxy to offer similar functionality?

Many thanks in advance.
