using overcoat I find 3 results for 8873057144, but I'm unable to add any of them to my library
Which source are you using then? I tried it through overcat too (like OP) and ran into the same problem. Same when I use "Italian National Library Service" directly, which is the source overcat brings up.
I searched using Overcat, as the OP suggested, and I selected the first example it proposed, which was the Italian National Library Service I think.
The script doesn't run for me
I'm using Safari Version 5.1.7
the script works with books found searching pentothal, for example
I tried firefox 13.0.1 with no luck
The question is what browser is bernsad using, because it gets around a known bug. Look in the More on all three results - the publication contains \1999!, and LT can't handle backslashes. An attempt to add fails silently, just as this one is doing (Amazon frequently has backslashes in titles, so that's what's usually mentioned, but any backslash anywhere in the record fails).
The really odd thing is that entering that ISBN and searching Overcat got me no results; I added Italian National Library Service and searched on that, got one result though the top said 3 (and nothing extra in More, I checked), then searched on Overcat again and got three results. Probably a completely separate bug (or even a feature - it doesn't give me non-English results in Overcat unless I search them directly first?). It will be interesting to see if I get Italian results from now on.
