Selecting Catalogs for ISBN Download

In Citavi you can choose which catalogs or databases should be used for the ISBN download. Citavi imports the bibliographic information from the first catalog in which the book was found. For this reason, we recommend that you set Citavi so that it always searches first in the library catalog you use most often. This allows you not only to import the bibliographic information for a book, but also its call number in the library you use.
