Bowker Identifier Services

Identifier Services

Bowker Identifier Services provides you with the resources you need to publish, distribute, and promote your books – and help readers find and purchase your titles. After you’ve written your book, you’ll need to buy an ISBN for each format of your book and a barcode for each printed book. You may also want to create an ebook version to distribute to major online retailers, and configure your book as an Android App to sell it through Google and Amazon. MyIdentifiers.com is available for the Australasian market (myidentifiers.com.au) and most recently launched in Spanish! Like the English-language version, the new site – MyIdentifiers.com/es/ – makes it easy to purchase ISBNs, barcodes, QR codes and the full range of other services Bowker offers to help connect publishers with book buyers.
