Hi, Julie. Since we're supposed to give the most recent copyright, it would make sense to give the current ISBN number. ISBN numbers have changed format, so it's definitely wise to give the most recent number from your book. Also, if a book has both a 10 and a 13 digit number, please give the 13 digit version since the 10 digit version will be phased out over time. The 13 digit number will allow Bookshare to work with data from publishers as they enhance our web site in the future.

I'm working on another book. I think I know the answer to this already but I want to make sure to put the correct information in the form. This book lists two copyrights, and for the ISBN, it lists one, then has a previous ISBN. I include the most recent copyright. I know that, but for the ISBN, I list the first one, right? It doesn't list an ISBN for hardcover, paperback and that kind of thing. It just gives one, then says "Previous ISBN," and gives that one.
