Koha most certainly does have an ISBN search feature where someone can
import a MARC record from another catalogue using z39.50. It's
accessible from the cataloguing module and doesn't take much to get
working; just pick your servers and go. 
I'm old fashioned and tend to import manually, so if someone else wants
to chime in on this, go for it. But, I would guess that if someone was
looking to do a title search with z39.50, that probably wouldn't be far
Koha spanks the crizznap outta Follett, IMHO.
