So I was posting a book today.
The ISBN on the back cover is 0329083775 (no, this is not the UPC- it is the ISBN)
It came up as not found so I was prompted to put the book's information into the system. I entered all of that, description and image, and it was posted to my shelf.
As I was paging through it just now, I noticed that inside the book on the catalog info page is a different ISBN 0698116895
This ISBN comes up with all of the right information for the book - image, binding, page numbers, publisher, etc.
Which one is the right one? Which one do I use?
I would use the one inside the book on the catalog info page. I say this because I have had a book that had the wrong ISBN on the back cover before (only once but still). If 0698116895 brings up all the correct info and is on the catalog page, I would consider it the right ISBN.
I would use the one on the cover of the book. If you use the one on the inside page, read through a little of the page first. I have often found a list of ISBNs for other versions or printings there.
