Issuing International Standard Book Number (ISBN)

ISBN is an international standard number for books that defines the title of each publication. The numbering process’s ultimate aim is to give each intellectual work a unique number that cannot be duplicated or be in any way similar to any other work. This number is what distinguishes a literary work from another, and is used by publication authorities.
