Malta releases its ISBN database online as open data

Ahead of the 2016 holiday period, the National Book Council for Malta has released its ISBN database online and freely available as open data. The National Book Council, which runs the ISBN Agency for Malta, works closely with the International ISBN Agency on several matters including the records of ISBNs and ISBN prefixes assigned to publishers based in the country.

The website for the Malta ISBN database is available at and contains several fields of information including the publisher, author, title and of course the ISBN. It is freely available for the general public to use.

We would like to thank the Malta ISBN Agency for their hard work on the database and for their efforts in improving the data about publications released by publishing organisations and individuals based in Malta.
