Explanation:
You can use the ISBN to search the database for the required items, or, if this fails, try a search engine.

Of course, the sentence is grammatically not expressing potential but action, meaning that the literal translation would be, "You will use," but adjust this as necessary -- I just took a wild guess as to the usage.

I'm not certain you need to translate 書籍 here, but that's a context question. In any case, that would just mean, "...search the book database..." or "...search the publisher's database..." depending.
