The ISTC (International Standard Textual Code) is starting to get some serious interest from different areas in the book supply-chain. BISG is having a seminar in New York on March 30th to discuss the use and implication of the ISTC. BIC and BISG have also released a discussion paper on the ISTC that is an excellent primer for the discussions to come.
BookNet Canada will be attending the ISTC seminar in New York and will be pushing more information out to the book industry in Canada over the next few weeks. Comments, concerns are always welcome at email@example.com
