  2. International ISBN - Administration restructure - Revision • Thorpe-Bowker Australian ISBN agency since 1997. • Formation of new ISBN International organisation owned, funded and governed by local agencies to oversee and regulate system. • Support previously provided by Prussian Cultural Foundation and Staatsbibliothek • Royalty from PIID (ISBN Directory) • Standard last revised in 1992.

  3. Responsibilities of new authority • To be the governing body for ISO 2108. • To agree and implement policies for ISBN. • To promote the use of ISBN internationally. • To provide training and advice to local agencies. • To represent ISBN on other standards bodies. • To compile an international publisher directory. • To liaise with bodies on metadata and identification.

  4. The present • Concerns about future capacity of the ISBN system, resulting from: • increased publishing output. • proliferation of electronic versions. • growth of print on demand. • electronic sales of chapters and other parts of books. • need to unambiguously identify versions. • increasing number of countries in the system.

  5. Ample ISBN 10 still available in Australia • 10s - 720 • 100s - 1054 • 1000s - 2828

  6. Priorities for the revision • Secure future capacity. • Protect present and future supply chain applications. • Compatibility with other product supply chains. • Clarify and confirm scope of ISBN. • Provide for core metadata. • Ensure robust governance for ISBN.

  7. Changes in the standard • New number structure. • Restatement of allocation principles. • Metadata framework. • Updated user manual and guidelines.

  8. Considerations • Existing 10 digit numbers can be converted retrospectively. • Check digit changes after addition of prefix. • Existing publisher prefixes will not be retained for 979 allocations. • Agencies will provide assistance. • Online tools are available

  9. Principles for ISBN assignment • Exclusions remain as before. • e.g. not for greetings cards, music, serials etc. • Coverage includes digital monograph publications on physical carriers or internet. • Separate identifier required for each electronic version separately traded. • ISBNs for parts of books traded separately.

  10. ISBN Metadata Set • ISBN Registrants will have to supply agency with basic information about the publication to which ISBN is assigned. • Simple ONIX compliant metadata set. • ISBN, Product form, Title, Contributor(s), Series (if applicable), Edition, Language, Publisher, Imprint, Country, Pub date, ISBN of parent publication (if applicable)

  11. Responsibility for changes • ISBN Agency will work with national and regional trade bodies and libraries. • Publishers, booksellers, libraries should ‘audit’ ALL their systems to see where ISBN is used. • Guidelines show examples of systems and departments affected e.g. • product information • editorial management • production systems • EDI systems • order fulfilment/warehouse management • accounting • rights, contracts and royalty systems • Searches available on all formats

  13. Communications • Agree your own timeline for the move to 13 digits. Suggest that the major publishers, booksellers and libraries communicate their own detailed plans to each other. • Eg. Library of Congress statement: “For CIP and other bibliographic records created after October 1, 2004 and before January 1, 2007, LC will group pairs of ISBN-13 and ISBN-10 by manifestation in repeated MARC21 020 fields, with the ISBN-13 input preceding the ISBN-10, each number qualified as appropriate.” • ISBN Agency (Australia) will create a register of compatible organisations (We need to be told). • WBN will feature ISBN 13 compatible organisations monthly (promoting awareness).

  14. Collection of metadata • Template for paper-based form. • Delivered by post or web • Simple ONIX entry tool. • Output in ONIX XML or MARC • Basic database for small publishers • Detailed ONIX specification and XML schema.

  18. Key messages • New standard permits continuity both with existing 10 digit ISBNs and into the future. • Reflects changes in global commerce and retail environment. • Integrates book trade in a universal numbering system. • Facilitates all known or anticipated supply chain needs for monographic publishing.
