International Standard Book Numbers (ISBNs)
Purchased Through Mind Like Water
(electronic formats only)

I. What Are ISBNs?

The International Standard Book Number (ISBN) is a 10-digit number that uniquely identifies books and book-like products published internationally.

The purpose of the ISBN is to establish and identify one title or edition of a title from one specific publisher and is unique to that edition, allowing for more efficient marketing of products by booksellers, libraries, universities, wholesalers and distributors.

The U.S. ISBN Agency (http://www.isbn.org) is responsible for assigning the ISBN Publisher Prefix to those publishers with a residence or office in the U.S. that are publishing their titles within the U.S. 

Every ISBN consists of ten digits that are divided into four parts. One of these four parts is the Publisher identifier, which identifies a particular publisher.

IMPORTANT: Therefore, by purchasing an ISBN from Mind Like Water, your ebook will be identified through its ISBN as being published by Mind Like Water, Inc. The ISBN applies ONLY to the format and publication you requested the ISBN be assigned to upon ordering (for example, the pdf version published in September 2004). The copyright page of this ebook should reflect Mind Like Water, Inc. as the publisher.

A separate ISBN must be assigned to the different formats in which a particular title is published, i.e., paper, cloth, microfilm, braille, multimedia sets, electronic, microcomputer software programs on various disk size, tape, cassette, etc. All formats have a separate ISBN. (For electronic books, that means that each format - html, pdf, lit, etc., must have its own ISBN.) If a multi-volume work is sold only as a set, one ISBN must be assigned to the whole set of volumes. If individual volumes of the set are also being sold separately, each volume must be assigned an individual ISBN. Revised editions require a new ISBN. Once an ISBN is assigned to a title, it cannot be reassigned even if the title goes out of print. When a title is reprinted, regardless of price change, the original ISBN must be maintained. 

Publications that have been assigned an ISBN must be reported by the publisher (i.e., Mind Like Water) to R.R. Bowker as the database of record for the ISBN Agency. Publications will be listed in Bowker's Books In Print (http://www.bowker.com/catalog/000022.htm). 

IMPORTANT: Therefore, by purchasing an ISBN from Mind Like Water, your ebook will be identified in Books In Print as being published by Mind Like Water, Inc. 

II. Mind Like Water as Publisher

Mind Like Water is ONLY a publisher with respect to the specific format and publication you requested the ISBN be assigned to. 

IMPORTANT: Mind Like Water will NOT be responsible in any way for creating, marketing or selling thE ebook TO WHICH AN ISBN HAS BEEN ASSIGNED! AS PUBLISHER, We ARE ONLY PROVIDING THE SERVICE OF ASSIGNING YOUR eBOOK AN ISBN. 

You are free to pursue another publisher for your ebook who will provide MORE services. THAT PUBLISHER WILL NEED TO ASSIGN A NEW ISBN FOR YOUR EBOOK.

If you acquire another publisher: If your ebook has been acquired from another publisher and has been reprinted and carries the imprint of the new publisher and the new publisher's ISBN, then the new publisher must give the ISBN of the previous edition (i.e., the ISBN assigned from Mind Like Water) as well as their own on the verso of the title page.

Example: ISBN 0-666-00123-5 (previously published by XY, ISBN 0-8420-0091-X) or ISBN 0-666-00123-5 (previously ISBN 0-8420-0091-X)
