The Brazilian National Library (BN) is responsible for the supervision and technical management of the International Standard Book Numbering Agency - ISBN, since 1978. The system numerically identifies the books according to the heading, the author, the country and the publisher, individualizing them also by edition.
To request the ISBN it is necessary:
- To be registered in the Agency.
- To fill in the ISBN form in a copy for each heading to be published.
- To send the cover sheet copy of the work to be published, along with the form.
To get more clarifications, access the portal of ISBN Brazilian Agency, which congregates all the information referring to the system in the country.
