ISBN Barcodes for Books

If you need a barcode for a book, we recommend that you first get an ISBN (International Standard Book Number). AN ISBN can be easily transformed into a barcode number for your book (therefore you will not need to buy a unique barcode number). ISBNs are unique international numbers that are assigned to published books & similar publications. ISBNs are recorded in book directories internationally. They enable publishers, libraries & book stores locate a specific book quickly and efficiently (for re-ordering purposes). A different ISBN is required for each different format published (eg. online books or different language editions).

To get an ISBN you will need to contact the Indian ISBN Agency.
