Requesting an ISBN or ISSN

When you want to publish a publication (see below) you can request an ISBN or ISSN through the TU Delft Library.

Only staff members and students of TU Delft can request an ISBN or ISSN from the library. You can do this with our ISBN application form, or provide the Library  metadata of the ISSN-form which is completely free of charge.


Independent publications (books, theses and reports, etc.) must be officially registered with an ISBN (International Standard Book Number). With a unique ISBN, you increase the findability and the accessibility of your publication. It is possible to search using an ISBN number in many catalogues and libraries (for example, all ISBN-registered publications are included in Brinkman's Cumulative Catalogue).


The International Standard Serial Number is a unique and international approved number in order to indetifiy the titles of serial publications. This number facilitates the exhange of information between publishers, intermediars, database-aggregators and libraries. ISSN is a very practical tool in searches through automatic generated data en in the exhange of data between dataproviders.
