Does anyone know of a tool to check a batch of ISBNs? I've found some ISBN checkers and validators that will take one ISBN and check it but how about 1000 or 10,000 run in batch mode? It would be nice to run the ISBNs in our catalog against a checker and then get a report on those that don't validate. We could then fix them or move them to subfield z. Cleaning up these in our catalogs would be improving an important access point, especially with tools like LibraryLookup. It might also help when the time came to FRBRize the catalog.
