Tomasz, are you working with imported MARC records?  Some of them may have
extra stuff in the ISBN tag -- like "1234567890 (pa.)" to indicate a
paperback edition.  (Which seems to me to violate the concept of a
tracking 'number' and get it confused with information that should be in a
note, if anywhere -- sorry, just one of my complaints about the sad state
of MARC cataloging.)  At any rate, such extra garbage will confuse the
Koha ISBN search.  I customized Nelsonville's import script to strip most
of that stuff when the MARC records are loaded.

No, the ISBN column is in the biblioitems table.
