ISBN Assistance

An ISBN (International Standard Book Number) is the number that uniquely identifies each book.  It is made up of either 10 or 13 digits, either of which is acceptable for the SIS. 

The ISBN entered should be for the student edition.  Instructor edition ISBNs should not be used.  If questioning what ISBN to use, please contact us at textbooks@panthersupply.com or call (319) 266-7581

When entering information in the ISBN field, only include numbers and dashes.  (Dashes are not required if you would like to leave them out.)
