ISBN Book Publishing Services
ISBN (International Standard Book Number) is a unique code for book identification. Information about the title, publisher, and publisher group is included in the ISBN. The ISBN is provided by the International Agency for ISBNs based in London. In Indonesia, the National Library of the Republic of Indonesia is the National ISBN Agency that is entitled to provide ISBNs to publishers located in Indonesian territory.
