Cindy | 30 comments I couldn't find this topic so I'm sorry if its already been asked. Which book, the original or reissue, should get the ISBN listed on book page and which one should get the librarian note saying it shares an ISBN? I entry "Reissue" in the edition area but I wasn't sure about ISBN.

Paula (paulaan) | 7027 comments The ISBN stays with the book it is on in the database first.

A note is added to the edition added at the later date.

Krystal (kjchan) | 7 comments The ISBN has changed on this book, but we only have an ISBN13 from the publisher. How do we delete the old ISBN?

Renske | 10803 comments 3 The old ISBN must stay on that edition and a new edition should be added for the new ISBN. I reverted the change of the ISBN on that edition and added a new edition for the new ISBN.
