[Metadata Source Plugin] Deutsche Nationalbibliothek (DNB)

This plugin uses the catalogue of the Deutsche Nationalbibliothek (DNB) to retrieve metadata.

Main Features
It supports retrieval of DNB-IDN, ISBN, authors, title, edition, tags, publication date, languages, publisher, comments, series, series index and cover.
For books without series information it can try to extract series and series index from the title. GND and/or non-GND subjects can be used as tags.

Special Notes:
For better performance and stability it is recommended to use a personal SRU Access Token. The Token is free of charge, you can get it from the DNB. With this token this plugin will use DNB's SRU API, without token it will do web scraping. The downloaded metadata is the same in each case. Please see the Readme file for more details.

Limitations:
The returned publication date contains only the year, not the precise date.

Installation Notes:
Download the latest plugin version from https://github.com/citronalco/calibre-dnb/releases/ and install the plugin as described in the Introduction to plugins thread.

Hello! This plugin sounds so good.

Register at Deutsche Nationalbibliothek was so easy.

But i´m not sure, what kind of sru access token is necessary.

What kind of format ? Marc 21 or RDF ? What meens that?
What kind of archive I need ? With or without GND???

I´m really helpless!

Finally i´ve got the sru Access Token!

I wrote the sru Access token Code in the Plugin - but it didn´t work.

No Metadatas found.

Without the sru Access token Code it works!

What´s wrong?

First of all, Lawer's issue with the non working SRU token was a non-issue, turned out to be a copy-paste problem.

The description of the steps required to get a SRU Access Token was a little too vague:
When requesting the token tell them you want to have access to the title data catalogue ("Titeldaten-Katalog") in the format MARC21-XML. I have updated the README file accordingly.

Marc21, Marc21-XML and RDF are different data formats, just like JPG and PNG.
DNB offers several catalogues, the Titeldaten-Katalog contains book information (title, author, publication date,...), the GND ("Gemeinsame Normdatei") contains e.g. biographic information about authors, valid descriptive tags etc.
