Obtain International Standard Serial Number (ISSN)

Here is some information that you may want to mention.

Newsletter publishers should consider obtaining an International Standard Serial Number (ISSN) for their newsletter to make it easier for libraries to keep track of publications with similar names.

A single ISSN uniquely identifies a title regardless of language or country in which published, without the burden of a complex bibliographic description. The ISSN itself has no significance other than the unique identification of a serial.

An ISSN is eight digits long.

You can obtain an ISSN for your newsletter free of charge from the Library of Congress`s National Serials Data Program at
Publishers outside the US can obtain an ISSN from their country`s national library.
