Twenty years of identifying books and serials in Croatia

At the beginning of the 1990s, after Croatia gained its independence, the necessary preconditions were reached for the establishment of these national centres in Croatia, and in 2012 we celebrated the twentieth anniversary of both the Croatian ISBN Agency and the ISSN Centre for Croatia.
Both databases are available to users according to specific terms and conditions of subscription and are used by libraries, publishers, union catalogues, databases, other identification systems, etc. If you do not have access to these databases, the Croatian ISBN Agency and ISSN Centre for Croatia can help you find this type of data. The principal tasks of these national centres are the assignment of identifiers enabling a unique identification of books and serials, active participation in all the activities of the system, regular contribution of metadata to international databases and cooperation with publishers.
