I'm trying to use search to find 2 books that were recommended to me during my trip to the UK and though I have all the info including ISBN, I keep getting 'not found' just before the screen clears all the info I've entered.

Try searching only with the ISBN -- no hyphens and no keywords. If the book has just been added to the database, the ISBN search is usually first to work. If that doesn't work, let us know what you're searching for.

Search function has been working fine for me today.

Thanks, apparently the ISBN I was searching with was for the e-book version.....the search function was just erasing it every time I put it in. Have found the book now that I have the ISBN for the physical copy.
