In IUCAT, how do I search by ISBN or ISSN?

In both basic and advanced searches, you can search IUCAT using an ISBN (for books) or ISSN (for journals and other regularly published items).

  • ISBN: Enter the number without spaces; hyphens are optional. IUCAT will find materials with both 10- and 13-digit ISBN numbers. For example, you could use any of the following:
      0345515633 
    
      9780345515636 
      
      978-0446310789 
      
      978-0-446-31078-9 
  • ISSN: Enter the number with or without hyphens or spaces. For example, you could use either of the following:
      1753-0369 
    
      17530369

In the basic search, leave the filter set to All Fields; in the advanced search, you can enter the number either under "All Fields:" or under "Numbers / Identifiers:".
