The International Standard Book Number (ISBN) is a unique international identifier assigned to monographic publications. The ISBN accompanies a publication from the time of production onwards and has revolutionized the international book trade, since it is an essential element in the ordering and distribution of material; stock control and, the compilation of book trade directories.

The ISBN Programme for the Caribbean Region which has been in operation since 1980, is administered by the Regional ISBN Agency, Caribbean Community Secretariat. Publishers who are Caribbean based (i.e. resident or have an agent in the Caribbean) and who are publishing their titles in the Caribbean, are eligible for participation.
