FREQUENTLY ASKED QUESTIONS:
What is metadata? This is the information that accompanies every eBook to help identify the book. The information includes the title of the book, author, publisher, creation date, and ISBN.
Why did the text format change from the file that I provided? This is common with eBooks as a result of the conversion process. Also worth noting, this process doesn't support running heads and page numbers because of the reflowing that occurs within the readers that give the viewer the opportunity to change the justification, the font style, and size.
Is a separate ISBN required for eBooks? Currently, only the Apple iBookstore (iPad) requires a separate ISBN. However, for tracking purposes we recommend that you obtain a separate ISBN.
