Yes, of course, if you have the funding, OCLC is great. Yours truly is used
to looking at volunteer organisation/small library/school library settings
where that kind of budget just doesn't exist.

ISBN will work for every record that has one. Remember because of coding
choices (mostly in the past, so chiefly an issue with older materials) not
all records have an ISBN and there is always the possibility of coding
error, though OCLC is up on corrections.

If their American office is like the "branch plant" here in Winnipeg (where
I did a library tech field placement) they'll offer you a nice degree of
editing of the records as well and go through setting up exactly what you
want/can afford.

Viel Glück damit!
