ISBN (International Standard Book Number)

ISBN stands for International Standard Book Number. It is a unique identifier for books, eBooks, tapes, and CD's. The ISBN numbering system is used worldwide and publishers around the globe identify their work in this standardized format. Each title or edition must be identified by a unique ISBN

It is the standard ID number used to identify books by booksellers, libraries, book wholesalers and distributors.

Other printers and publishers may offer ISBN numbers in their services but keeping mind, whoever purchases the number is listed as the publisher as ISBN numbers are non-transferrable. Acquiring a ISBN is a simple process.

Go to ISBN.ORG and order directly from Bowker Identifier Service (USA issuing agency)
