International Standard Serial Numbers (ISSN)

The Library is also the national centre for the International Serial Data System (ISDS). It therefore registers and assigns International Standard Serial Numbers (ISSN) to local serials.

The ISSN is an internationally accepted code that provides a unique numerical identification for a serial publication. It takes the form of the acronym “ISSN” followed by two groups of four digits, separated by a hyphen.

Example of an ISSN: ISSN 0799-8697
