Det slarvas med ISBN på biblioteken

Detta kan vara av intresse för bl.a bibliotek som konsekvent slarvar
med ISBN och ISSN när man ägnar sig åt digitalisering. Dessutom ska
alla format ha eget ISBN eller ISSN.

According to ISBN official standards, each format of an e-book should be
given its own ISBN.
This means if a book is sold in mobi-pocket and Adobe formats each would
be given a separate
 (unique) number by the publisher even if the content is exactly the
same. During the revision
process for the current standard, this point received intense discussion
mostly focused on the
burden that applying what could amount to several hundred ISBNs to a
single work would have
 on publishers' processes. We resolved this issue for the standard with
judicious use of words
 such as 'shall' and 'should' but the issue was raised again recently
when the ISBN board
 released a 'policy statement' reaffirming the need for separate ISBN's
on each format of an ebook.
