Do I Need An ISBN?

Well in short, no!

You only need an ISBN if you would like to list your book on Nielsen so it is then avaialble for publishers and shops to order. There is no legal requirement in the UK or Republic of Ireland for an ISBN and it conveys no form of legal or copyright protection. It is a product identification number.

Which products do NOT qualify for ISBNs?

  •  Serials/periodicals/journals

  •  Calendars *

  • Diaries *

  • Videos for entertainment

  • Documentaries on Video/CD-ROM

  • Computer Games

  • Computer Application Packages

  • Music scores

  • Items which are available to a restricted group of people, e.g. a history of a Golf Club – only for sale to members; or an educational course book only available to those registered as students on the course.

  • Websites

  • Non text-based publications

The ISBN History and Legals

Legal Deposit Copies is the act of submitting published material to designated libraries and archives. 

In the United Kingdom the Legal Deposit Libraries Act 2003, and the Copyright and Related Rights Act 2000 978191009037(Ireland) make it obligatory for publishers and distributors in the UK and Ireland to deposit their publications within one month of publication to six libraries that collectively maintain the national published archive of the British Isles.

This is a four centuries old tradition, which will ensure that your publication is accessible in the library reading rooms, is preserved for the benefit of future generations and form part of the national heritage. Your book will be recorded in the online catalogue of the libraries, which is accessible on the worldwide web and provides an essential research tool for generations to come.

One copy of each publication should be deposited with The British Library in Wetherby.

Legal Deposit Office, The British Library, Boston Spa, Wetherby, W.Yorks, LS23 7BY Tel: +44 (0) 1937 546268 Website: www.bl.uk

The other Legal Deposit Copies must be sent to the following Libraries. However, many publishers choose to send their publications to all six libraries at the same time, ensuring their inclusion in all the archives.

The other Legal Deposit Libraries are:

  • The Bodleian Library, Oxford

  • The University Library, Cambridge

  • The National Library of Scotland

  • The National Library of Wales, Aberystwyth

  • The Library of Trinity College, Dublin.

Your book will also be listed via Nielsen BookData, so if it does become a commercial success, all of the major book retailers will be able to purchase your book.

In addition, your book will also receive an ISBN (International Standard Book Number).
