How do I search by ISBN?

The International Standard Book Number (ISBN) is always found on the back cover, near the bar code. It will also be listed inside the book, on the same page as the copyright and publisher information. It is always labeled ISBN.

To search by ISBN, simply type the 10 or 13 digits into the search box. Do not include dashes or spaces.

How do I look up UPC or EAN numbers?

The Universal Product Code (UPC) or European Article Number (EAN) usually can be found on the back of a CD or DVD case.

The UPC consists of 12 numbers and the EAN is 13 numbers.

To look up the corresponding item(s), please enter the 12-digit or 13-digit number without dashes or spaces in the search text box.
