AbstractThis article outlines the calculations for the check digit and error detection for the ISBN-10 and the ISBN-13 codes. It lists the aims of replacing the ISBN-10 with ISBN-13 and shows that the ISBN-13 does not satisfy two of these aims. It later describes a new ISBN-13 code which does satisfy all four aims.
