The ISSN International Centre is currently enhancing its services which will include a new interface to request ISSN assignments and a new web portal to access ISSN data more easily. A presentation will be given on Wednesday 23 August at 1.00 p.m. at IFLA Expo Pavilion / Lab. Visit us also on booth A120.
The ISSN International Centre will be exceptionally closed on Monday, August 14th due to the maintenance of our IT network and servers.
We apologize for the inconvenience this may cause you.
The ISSN International Centre has just launched a call for experts.
The International Standard Serial Number (ISSN) is an ISO standard. The ISSN database (the “ISSN Register”) is a catalogue of more than 2 million bibliographic records in Marc 21 format with an annual growth of approximately 60,000 records.
Since 2004, the ISSN International Centre has been using the “ISSN Virtua” software, i.e. a customized version of the basic Virtua LMS system by Innovative.
The retained expert shall explore and assess various market solutions and service providers that could contribute to the implementation of a new information system to support the ISSN Register.
The ISSN International Centre is thus expecting a report including a set of recommendations on which the subsequent call for tender shall be based to get the best solution to replace the current production system.
Interested parties shall send an email to firstname.lastname@example.org to receive further information. The deadline to submit a proposal is July 13th, 2017.
