You can place requests for publisher files to any of the below publishers on ATN. Typically, you will get files faster by requesting them on ATN rather than emailing the publisher or filling out their online form. The reason publishers can fulfill your requests faster on ATN than any alternative is because they can store their files for automatic fulfillment if they so wish - and most do!

<p>Note that books can have multiple ISBNs that all represent the same content. For example, a textbook may have a unique ISBN 13 for all of the following formats: the loose-leaf version of the book, the paperback, the hard cover, rental ebook, book bundled with the access code, etc....  Whenever it is possible for you to identify and request the ISBN13 that represents a printed version of the book, you will likely have more success in getting a file quickly because publishers tend to store files on a print ISBN ATN title record.<p>

==ABOUT ISBNs==
 +
For more than thirty years, ISBNs were 10 digits long. In 2007 the ISBN system switched to a 13-digit format. Now all ISBNs are 13-digits long. A 10-digit ISBN '''cannot''' be converted to 13-digits merely by placing three digits in front of the 10-digit number. There is an algorithm that relates the isbn10 and isbn13 together which frequently results in a change of the last digit of the ISBN.

PLACING REQUESTS

You can place requests for publisher files to any of the below publishers on ATN. Typically, you will get files faster by requesting them on ATN rather than emailing the publisher or filling out their online form. The reason publishers can fulfill your requests faster on ATN than any alternative is because they can store their files for automatic fulfillment if they so wish - and most do!

A pie charts that shows the file request fulfillment time in ATN. 95% of fulfilled requests are delivered in 3 days or less. Same day is 63%, 1 day is 23.5%, 2 days is 3.5%, 3 days is 5%, 4 days is 2%, and 5 plus days is 3%.

Note that books can have multiple ISBNs that all represent the same content. For example, a textbook may have a unique ISBN 13 for all of the following formats: the loose-leaf version of the book, the paperback, the hard cover, rental ebook, book bundled with the access code, etc.... Whenever it is possible for you to identify and request the ISBN13 that represents a printed version of the book, you will likely have more success in getting a file quickly because publishers tend to store files on a print ISBN ATN title record.
