TITLE: The National Serials Data Program
DESCRIPTION: The page features both a downloadable and an interactive ISSN application form. Use of the form is limited to U.S. publishers since NSDP can assign ISSN only to serials published in the United States. However, the page also includes a link to the ISSN International Centre's Web site. The U.S. center's page also includes the text of NSDP's printed _ISSN Is for Serials_ brochure, a frequently asked questions (FAQ) list, special instructions about ISSN for electronic serials, and the text of the brochure, _What's in a Name?_ developed by the Serials Section of the Association for Library Collections & Technical Services (ALCTS), a division of the American Library Association. This brochure contains guidelines on the presentation of titles, title changes, numbering, bar coding, and other areas of interest to serial publishers. The page concludes with links to related resources for serial publishers. NSDP staff are looking forward to publishers' use of the interactive application form because the form is linked to a conversion program that will enable a cataloger to convert the data supplied by the publisher into a preliminary catalog record, ready for editing and the addition of an ISSN and specialized data by the cataloger.
