How do you post a book that isn't in the PBS database?

You would have to do it using the "Book Without an ISBN" feature and list all the details.

When you go to Post Book section and enter the ISBN and it isn't found... it should automatically bring up a form for you with blanks for Title/Author etc to fill in.  I recently did that with a book from England.

Lita, that will only happen if the ISBN is in the database without the rest of the info. Not ALL ISBNs are in the database, and those that are not, will not bring up the blank page for filling in the rest of the info. Those will need to be entered as if they have no ISBN.
