What is an ISBN number?

The International Standard Book Number, or ISBN, is a unique commercial book identifier. The ISBN system is based on the 9-digit Standard Book Numbering (SBN) code created in the United Kingdom in 1966 by the booksellers and stationers W.H. Smith and others. The 10-digit International Standard Book Number (ISBN) format was developed by the International Organization for Standardization and published as an international standard, ISO 2108, in 1970. (However, 9-digit SBN codes continued in use in the UK until 1974.) ISO TC 46/SC 9 is now responsible for the standard.
