ISBN-13's in the NHU-PAC

Beginning Monday, November 13, 2006 new bibliographic records added to the NHU-PAC will have 13-digit ISBNs that are searchable in the same way as 10-digit ISBNs. In most cases, newer records will be searchable in both 10- and 13-digit formats. The project to upgrade all existing NHU-PAC records to the new ISBN format remains in the future but hundreds of records will be upgraded each week in the course of our regular program to correct and improve the database. Many records added in the past year have 13-digit ISBNs in them but you must use the Numbers Appearing On Materials browse search to find them.
