Public Library Skills

  • ISSN (International Standard Serial Number)
    The ISSN is an internationally accepted code which identifies serial publications. The American Library of Congress assigns a number that identifies a serial publication (periodical), such as a magazine, newsletter, or newspaper, much the same as a license plate number identifies a car. It consists of eight digits, with a check digit at the end, in the following format: ISSN XXXX-XXXX. The ISSN is used by the Library of Congress, other libraries, and other organizations in the periodical publications industry to identify, catalog, order, and track periodicals. It is very similar to the International Standard Book Number (ISBN) used in the book industry to identify books. Retailers use ISSN and ISBN numbers to record what they have sold, what they need to order, and what they have ordered. The numbers are usually included in advertising to the publications industry so that periodicals and books can be ordered by number, making it easier for everyone involved to get the right publication to the right person. The ISSN also has an important application for the U.S. Postal Service, which uses it to identify publications granted second-class mail privileges. Per USPS regulations, the ISSN must be published somewhere in the first five pages of the periodical, preferably in the masthead. If the publication does not have an ISSN number, the USPS Office of Mail Classifications will assign a USPS identification number. ISSN numbers can be requested by publishers of new and existing publications from the Library of Congress in Washington, D.C. Book publishers can request an ISBN number, to be assigned to the book of their choice, from the R. R. Bowker Company in New York. Source:
    An increasingly important use of the ISSN is as a component in EAN barcodes for magazines. ISSN has been standardized by ISO ((International Organization for Standardization))Source:
