ISBN Barcode Assignment
The International ISBN Agency in the UK coordinates all ISBN allotments while individual group agencies assign ISBNs for each country. Every country has an organization which administers these numbers and the U.S. ISBN Agency is run by Bowker. Bar Code Graphics, Inc. has an agreement with the US ISBN Agency and our Publisher Services division is able to act as an agent for small publishers and facilitate single ISBN assignments with a publisher’s name listed as the registrant (Personalized Publisher Program). Today, Publisher Services is now the largest authorized agent and provides the majority of ISBN assignment to self-publishers.
Independent Publisher Services LLC (Publisher Services) is a specialized business unit of Bar Code Graphics, Inc. We work with authors who need assistance with ISBN identification and offer a variety of products and services developed to facilitate self-publishers, who are looking to bring their books to market. What started as a partnership with the US ISBN Agency has developed into a full service self-publishing company, which has provided assistance to over 57,000 publishers.
