Search for book sources

  

This page links to catalogs of libraries, booksellers, and other book sources where you will be able to search for the book with ISBN. If you arrived at this page by clicking an ISBN number link in a Monoskop page, then the links below (those labeled "find this book") search for the specific book using that ISBN number. Enter another ISBN number in the ISBN search form to change the search links below. Spaces and dashes in the ISBN number do not matter. Note: The number starts after the colon for "ISBN-10:" and "ISBN-13:" numbers.

Note

  • An ISBN identifies a specific edition of a book. Any given title may therefore have a number of different ISBNs. See xISBN below for finding other editions.
  • An ISBN registration, even one corresponding to a book page on a major book distributor database, is not definite proof that such a book actually exists. A title may have been cancelled or postponed after the ISBN was assigned. Both ISBN and other registration have been abused in attempted hoaxes on Wikipedia in the past, so check to see if the book exists or not.
  • The master copy of this page is located at Wikipedia:Book sources.

Find other editions

  • Related ISBNs from xISBN. This service will look up ISBNs for different editions of the same book, hardback or paperback, first print or a reprint, even re-editions where the title has changed. xISBN's linkages are determined algorithmically, based on the concepts of the Functional Requirements for Bibliographic Records.
  • Related ISBNs from LibraryThing's thingISBN service. Works like xISBN, but based on the collective intelligence of LibraryThing users, who "combine" and "separate" books to create "works." thingISBN is less complete and weaker on library editions, but stronger for many paperbacks and non-English books.
