I just tried posting a book with the ISBN 9780965861007. The book is Home Town by Tracey Kidder, but it comes up as something called Gym Rats. I'm holding Home Town in my lap, so I know the number is correct. Never heard of Gym Rats before. I'd rather not post it manually, since that might further complicate things. Any suggestions?

Have you tried both the 10 digit ISBn and the 13 digit ISbn?  It may be that you will have to post it manually.  some publishers re-use ISBN's.  How old is each book?

Thanks for the suggestion, and yes - I tried it both ways with the same result. Home Town is from 1999 - not sure about the other one, as I've never seen it before  :(

I experienced this awhile back.  Notified a librarian, and it was fixed pronto . . .then your book may be posted under the correct ISBN :-)
