Google Books Search: the created search (ProcessGBSBookInfo) creates a search for “ISBN=…”. This can lead to an incorrect result in Google Books and a wrong book cover is displayed. When searching instead for “isbn=…” the result is correct.
rep_change #2372 (Aleph 22) and #2069 (Aleph 23)
Description: WEB - Google Books API - when searching, using the ISBN keyword, the 'ISBN' search term is sent to Google API in uppercase letters instead of lower case. This cause inconsistent results.
For example: The correct url should be: https://www.googleapis.com/books/v1/volumes?q=isbn:0735619670 and not https://www.googleapis.com/books/v1/volumes?q=ISBN:0735619670.
Solution: This has been corrected. Now, the isbn is sent in lowercase.
