The International Standard Book Number ISBN makes a publication uniquely identifiable worldwide.

The university library manages ISBN numbers, which can be allocated to publications from BOKU-members and institutes. This service is free of charge as well as an optional  registration of the publication in the Verzeichnis lieferbarer Bücher (VLB).

If you need an ISBN, please send an E-Mail with the following details to

  •  BOKU-Institute, address
  •  Names of the authors/editors
  •  Title of the publication
  •  Planned date of publication

Please note the ISBN-Merkblatt (in German) from the Hauptverband des Österreichischen Buchhandels (HVB) and make sure the specimen copies will be deposited at the libraries. Further informations can be found on the website of the Austrian National Library
