I have bought my own ISBN. If I use Lulu's free ISBN, can I use mine with CreateSpace or other printer/publishers? 


  • I believe so.


    The registrant element of an ISBN (5 didgits) identifies the particular publisher or imprint.

    If you use the Lulu ISBN Lulu is shown as the publisher so your ISBN should identify you.


    Remember, also, that each format of a book requires its own ISBN so hardback, paperback

    and ebook would require three ISBNs.
