Wikipedia:Book sources

From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

This page links to catalogs of libraries, booksellers, and other book sources where you will be able to search for the book by its International Standard Book Number (ISBN).

  • If you arrived at this page by clicking an ISBN link in a Wikipedia page, then the find links below search for the specific book using that ISBN. To search for a different ISBN, type it into this ISBN search box.
  • Spaces and dashes in the ISBN do not matter. Also, the number starts after the colon for "ISBN-10:" and "ISBN-13:" numbers. 
  • 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. Check to see if the book exists or not.
