See parent class documentation (WWW::Scraper::ISBN::Driver)
Requires the following modules be installed:
Searches for book information from the Library of Congress's online catalog. May be slower than most drivers, because it must first create a session and grab a session ID before perforiming a search.

None by default.
Starts a session, and then passes the appropriate form fields to the LOC's page. If a valid result is returned, the following fields are available via the book hash:
