The impact of coronavirus

In common with many organisations across the world, the current Covid-19 crisis is having an impact on the International ISBN Agency's operations. Please be advised that, until further notice, our offices in Russell Square will not be occupied and all staff will be working remotely. However, we would like to stress that staff members are otherwise working as normal and that the International ISBN Agency's functions are being performed with no interruption.

Should you wish to contact the International ISBN Agency, please note that our telephone system is being accessed only intermittently and post sent to us via mail will not be read at all during this period. If possible, please contact us by e-mail at

We would like to take this opportunity to send our best wishes to the ISBN and publishing communities to keep safe and well during these difficult times.
