ISBN "locked"

Hello all!


I've got a question about ISBNs. I set one up at the beginning of the process but now that I've got my guidebook together, I've decided to change its title. However, when I go to my ISBN page it reads "locked." What does that mean and how do I unlock it?


Thanks in advance for your help!

The ISBN is always locked once assigned to a book.  You don't change the title on the ISBN page, but on the Title Information page.  The ISBN will remain.

If the book hasn't been published, you can contact Customer Support and request that they change the title for you.
