Hi, ISBNdb Users! We receive a lot of emails regarding how to contact the author/publisher/copyright owner of a certain book that we have in our database.

We'd like to take this opportunity to remind you that ISBNdb is simply the most comprehensive book database available on the web, offering up to 18 million titles and counting.

Additionally, all paying users can now see their API key and user level on their dashboard.
