I've got a fix checked in for Tellico that works slightly better with 
the KB SRU service. At least, it allow specifying the SRU path with the 
addition x-collection and x-fields parameters and reads the response, 
including title, ISBN, publisher and date.

I'll have that in the next (maybe last) release of the stable 2.3.x 
series for KDE4. I can make more extensive fixes for the next release of 
Tellico for the new KDE Frameworks 5.
