ISBN numbers are important for use all around the NetGalley site. You will use the ISBN number for all of the following:
- When creating an individual title record using the Create New button
- In your manifest when creating many titles at once
- Naming your content files on ftp.netgalley.com (PDFs and EPUBs)
- Naming your cover image files (.jpg)
ISBN is the primary identifier in NetGalley, so it is crucial that the content files and title records match exactly. For our larger clients, an easy way to avoid this common mistake is to share your manifest file internally! Once the manifest has been uploaded to NetGalley, send it also to the production folks so they're aware which ISBN was used for each title.
A note on edition types: Right now the NetGalley system will only display edition information for one type. You can add additional edition information (other formats, pricing, etc.) to the "Notes" section in the title record.
