Retrieve ISBN information via API + Camera Input

I've created a book request survey and would like to implement some additional features if possible.

  1. A person enters an ISBN number and book details are pulled via API (book name, edition, author etc. etc.) I'd like the results to appear instantly to the survey taker to double-check/validate the pulled nformation is correct.
  2. Can the book image be displayed too via the API?
  3. Is it possible for the ISBN barcode to be scanned via a phone's camera or computer webcam to make the process even easier, than manually inputting the ISBN?

Any links/advice to making the above happen is appreciated. Thank you!

    Hello,

    Point #1 and #2 are certainly possible using writing custom JavaScript code.

    Point #3 might be possible as well but it'd take third party library integration to first get ISBN number by scanning the code and then calling API to get book details from ISBN.

    Thanks, ChiragK.

    Unfortunately, I don't know any programming languages.

    Do you know of any existing code I can use? I should be able to modify/tailor it if it's not too complex.

    Thanks so much.
