Librarians everywhere are in a panic in anticipation of January 1, 2007. They only have two years to prepare for the new ISBN format which changes from 10 to 13 digits on 1 January, 2007.

If this concerns you as much as it concerns me you might be asking yourself?

  1. How will I order books when I only know the 10-digit ISBN?
  2. Will I have to switch to using 13-digit ISBNs for searches in my library database?
  3. What are library vendors planning and when will we see changes?
For the answers to these questions and many more go here.
