The difference between ISBN, Barcodes, LCCN, & copyright | Which does your self-published book need?

I’ve seen a lot of questions on this on comments on this channel, direct messages that I get from authors, in authors forums, so I am going to set the record straight on these three very different but very important technical aspects of your book. Your ISBN. Your Library of Congress Control Number (LCCN) and your copyright. I’ve done videos on each of these topics individually which I will link to above and down in the description.

First, let’s review for US-based authors where to go to get these items:
