Additional Services

We can offer the following services to you...

Proofreading and Editing
We can provide basic proofreading services in-house; checking for spelling consistency, typos and the correct use of grammar. We can also link you up with reliable, professional editors if required.
ISBN
We can provide you with an ISBN or you can purchase this yourself. The purpose of the ISBN is to identify one specific version of a book. It is a requirement if you want your book to be available commercially or catalogued for use in National, State and Regional libraries. If you wish to have a hard bound copy, a soft bound copy, an ePUB, a PDF, a MOBI, or even register a new version, you will need a unique ISBN for each version. 
Barcodes
If you want your book to be available commercially, you will need a barcode to go on the back cover. This barcode is based on your book's unique ISBN. We can generate the barcode for you.
CiP data
We can organise the CiP data for you. Cataloguing-in-Publication (CiP) is a service offered to publishers by the National Library of Australia to provide a catalogue record for publications. This information is shown on the Imprint page and enables your book to be catalogued for use in National, State and Regional libraries. Your obligations for the CiP data is to provide a copy of your book to your state library and the National library.
