ISBN Assignment

Note: ISBN Assignment is already included in every package.

In the book market, an International Standard Book Number is an essential piece of identification. This 13-digit number is unique to your book and allows distributors, retailers, printers, and readers to accurately find and order your title. Every book we publish is assigned an ISBN to make it easy to find.

Legal Deposit

Note: Legal Deposit is already included in every package.

The legal deposit is a system that helps ensure the preservation of published material related to Australia and its people—for the benefit of the community and future generations. By law, any Australian person, group, or organisation that publishes material made available to the public is required to deposit a copy of it to the National Library.

Balboa Press takes care of the Legal Deposit to the National Library for you as part of your publishing package, with no paperwork required on your end.

Libraries in your home state or territory may also require a deposit of your work. Please approach your local deposit libraries directly to submit a copy of your book.

If you have questions, please call 1800 050 315 for more information on these services.
