Please note:

Citavi searches the catalogs that you've selected for the ISBN download. This means that the citation information for the book does not come from the webpage the ISBN appears on. If you find a DOI name on a webpage, you can also use the Picker. In this case, Citavi adds the information from crossref.org or datacite.
