Yes, it certainly does. I've always had access to the isbn I just never 
bothered to paste it in, hmmm. Julia

  Hi, Julia. The ISBN isn't required. It's helpful to put on the form if you 
know it, but it doesn't always scan well. I get many of my books from Paperback 
Swap, so I have a handy way to just copy and paste the ISBN number onto the 
submission form. If you can't access the number for your book, no one will come 
knocking at your door to nfind out why it's missing from your book. (smile) At 
the beginning of this year, publishers switched over to a new 13-digit system 
to allow for the expanding number of books being published each year. The old 
number was 10 digits, and some books were published with both sets of numbers 
last year as publishers prepared for the new system. So if you have a choice, 
the 13-digit number is the one to use because it will help Bookshare keep track 
of books in the future. I hope this helps make sense of the whole number thing.
