FAQ


DO I NEED TO ENTER DASHES WHEN I ENTER THE ISBN?

You DO NOT need to enter dashes in the ISBN. As you have probably noticed on adoption lists and instructional materials some publishers use dashes in their ISBN and some do not. For your convenience and to reduce confusion we have removed the need of entering dashes when entering ISBN's in any field on this site.

WHAT DOES THE SYMBOL © MEAN AND WHAT IS IT FOR?

The symbol © is the copyright symbol.  The copyright in our system is the last two digits of the year that the material was published.  The reason you need to know this information is that we may carry multiple copyrights of a particular book.  Your class may be using the one with a copyright of 07 and there is also an 09 on the inventory.  You will need to pay special attention to this copyright date in order to ensure you are ordering the proper material.  This information is displayed as the last two positions of the title precedded by the symbol ©.

WHAT IS AND WHY DO WE HAVE ISBN10 AND ISBN13?

In January of 2007 all publishers converted to the 13 digit ISBN. You still see the 10 digit ISBN in many places and it is still valid. The 13 digit ISBN is the ten digit ISBN with 978 added to the front and the last digit converted to a check digit which is different 99% of the time. For example you will never see a 13 digit ISBN with an X at the end. At some time in the future you will see ISBN's beginning with 979. This is a true 13 digit ISBN and there is no 10 digit ISBN associated with it. At EBD we have tried to reduce the confusion by accepting either ISBN. Simply enter the ISBN you have, either 10 digit or 13 digit. You do not need to preface the ISBN with 13/ or 10/ when entering the ISBN anywhere on this site.

WHAT IF I CAN’T FIND THE TITLE I NEED IN YOUR INVENTORY?

It has been the policy of EBD over the years to utilize the adoption reports submitted by the schools in Arkansas to determine what items would be placed in our inventory. Then as orders were placed items were added to satisfy the needs of the schools. Years ago when we initially placed our inventory on our website we did not foresee that individuals responsible for ordering would interpret the absence of titles online as an indication that they could not order those titles from EBD. Due to the preponderance of titles of all the publishers we service it would not be feasible to display all the available titles. If you do not find a title on our site please call us at (501) 490-0007, fax us at (501) 490-0006, or email us at books@educatorsbook.com and we will make every effort to meet your need for ANY instructional material.

HOW DO I IMPROVE MY INVENTORY SEARCHING?

You can improve your results on our search by beginning with a general search then as you get more information move to a more detail search. For example, if you are looking for supplemental materials in math for different publishers. By entering math in the subject area you are confronted with thousands of titles. As you can see on the display the subject area is very specific. Now by adding the words supplemental materials after math in the subject area and searching again your results are reduced drastically. By browsing you might want to again reduce your results to secondary material. By adding GR 9-12 at the end of your previous search you once again reduce the results and now you can go even further by keeping your subject the same and adding a publisher criteria. What once began as thousands of titles now is down to less than fifty titles to decide from. You can now see what each publisher offers simply by changing that criteria with each new search. This is just an example of how to reduce your results. Experiment with the different criteria in the different search fields and you will in no time become very adept in finding the information you require. Once again we remind you that if you do not find a title on our site please call us at (501) 490-0007, fax us at (501) 490-0006, or email us at books@educatorsbook.com and we will make every effort to meet your need for ANY instructional material.
