Things necessary to publish
For those who are trying to put a book together, there are several things that must included for the publication process to be complete. First, there is the ISBN number which is basically a book identifier. Next, is a Library of Congress number so the book can be recognized as legitimate. After that comes a very important thing, the copyright number. This makes sure that no one else can legally steal your work. And last, but not least, the bar code. This makes sure that your book can be sold at stores. The process of acquiring all these things can take some time, but if you have a competent publisher it shouldn't take longer than a couple of weeks. Trying to publish without any of the aforementioned elements is a guarantee that either no one will notice your work, or someone will try to plagiarize it.
