scaning of sites for metadata
Is there a way to scan non-commercial sites for metadata? Lots of books offered for download have better description than the ones I buy from Amazon. Copying by hand is somehow boring. So is there a way to grap the metadata from such a site once there is a trace via google? I.e. if I know which site has metadata I would like, can I add the address http:\\.... to have it scanned and grab metadata? Sorry if this sounds silly, but as I'm a total newbie in this field, I do not know which procedures are behind the metadata aquisition. To my opinion, it could be possible if Author/Booktitle is found on a page to grab what's arround in text and pictures.
btw: my deep respect goes to all the developers for this great piece of software!

Look in the Plugin Index and see if someone has done your site.
In lieu of that, there is the 'Search the Internet' plugin, where you might snag (copy and paste) things related to the search

One is a commercial site the other two are not. If you have sites you think might be good candidates for downloading metadata add your idea to the sticky thread titled, Plugin ideas... add yours here in the Plugins forum. Maybe some developer will agree and put in the time to develop a metadata download plugin for the suggested site.
