How Do I Find the ISBN on my Book?

You need to know your ISBN number for your books. This number is typically located on the back of your book and starts with "978."

Some professors also provide the ISBN in some syllabi. We also list the ISBN for books on our Course Materials Listing for the Fall 2021 term. The ISBN number is listed on the book listing.
