The International Standard Book Number, or ISBN, is a number that identifies a specific book at an international level.
It is used in the large distribution bookstores to facilitate the identification of each book, since many books have the same title.
Let’s look at an example of an ISBN code!
The ISBN code consists of 13 digits and is unique for each book. This means that there are no two books with the same ISBN.
The EAN is used to identify products and not just books at large retailers.
To standardize the system, in 2007, we passed from ISBN-10 to ISBN-13 so that the EAN code coincides with ISBN
