The International Standard Book Number (ISBN) is a 13-digit number that uniquely identifies books and book-like products published internationally. The purpose of the ISBN is to establish and identify one title or edition of a title from one specific publisher and is unique to that edition, allowing for more efficient marketing of products by booksellers, libraries, universities, wholesalers and distributors

You can use the ISBN to look up a book in the IUP Libraries by using the Discovery Search. Using Advanced Search, drop down the "Any field" menu and select ISBN. Type in the number and click search.
