Free ISBNs (International Standard Book Number) Part One

Free ISBNs

Whether your published work is a printed book, an ebook, an audiobook, or an educational or instructional DVD, you will require an ISBN. An International Standard Book Number or ISBN is a unique thirteen-digit numerical identifier used worldwide to identify your publication. It’s similar to the scannable bar codes you find on every package at your local supermarket and retail stores. You know the ones that make the cash registers beep.

ISBNs are required for the sale and distribution of a publication, and any Canadian publisher can acquire an ISBN easily and free of charge from ISBN CANADA. To apply for your free ISBN(s), all you need to do is create an ISBN CANADA account. The service is free and allows you to manage your ISBN’s for current and future publications.

For more information or to determine if you qualify as a Canadian publisher, visit  ISBN CANADA.

To register, go to create an ISBN Canada account.
