An ISBN number is a 13 digit code that uniquely identifies a book. This code helps identify a specific edition, format, or variation of a book. For example, the ISBN will be different for a paperback than the hardcover. This code is usually located on the back cover of a book near the bar code.

Currently, InfoHawk+ cannot be searched by ISBN number.

A general rule for locating a book title & details using ISBN number only is to search in WorldCat—and then using title to locate any other available versions or e-books or collected works.
