Introduction

National Bibliography Number Sources identifies the official national bibliography documentation (databases or print publications) that contain the numbers for national bibliography entries and assigns a code to each database or publication.  The purpose of these source codes is to enable the source documentation of a national bibliography number in a metadata record to be indicated by a code.  For code assignment, general structure, usage, and maintenance guidelines see Introduction.

Arrangement of the list

Entries in the list are arranged in alphabetical order by the code and consist of the source code followed by the bibliographic citation for the source documentation.  The citations are linked to the online source for some codes.

Code structure

Each code consists of a maximum of 12 lowercase alphabetic characters.  Possible additions to codes are described in Source Code Maintenance.
