@noisydeadlines You can re-try items that didn't import in your original CSV import, that can often get books that timed out the first time. Usually books with ISBNs are available on OpenLibrary or inventaire and can be imported, but non-English-language coverage isn't as good.
@noisydeadlines Yes, they will available to anyone!
Did the books that didn't import have ISBNs? It may be that some of them failed because of transient errors and could still be imported
