01 - creating a library




It is easier to learn with an organized library. On our shelves, all items are listed in alphabetical order by author. We also identified five categories: A) fiction, B) non-fiction C) poetry D) film and plays E) audio . The listing must include:
author's name - book title - (original title, original date
(translated by + name of translator )
name of publisher, country, year of publication, isbn numberIf neither author nor editor is listed, then the item is listed under the first important word of the title (Arabian Nights)

When travelling, it makes sense to take an e-reader and an mp3 player with downloads rather than books and CD: this prevents loss and damage; and second you will probably bring back new items to add to your library.

ISBN
In 1926, the Federation of National Standardizing Association (ISA) started life in Prague. This non-governmental organization aimed at facilitating world trade by assigning codes to different types of item: stationary technology, agriculture etc and of course books. The ISA offices were shut down by the Nazis in 1942. In 1947, the organization opened its new headquarters in Geneva (Switzerland)  and became known as the International Organization for Standardization (ISO) since then, 20.000 standards been issued and nowadays the ISO has 164 member countries and three official languages: English, French and Russian.
The method of assigning an isbn code varies from country to country. It evolved from a 9-digit standard code created in 1966 by Prof. Gordon Foster at Dublin Trinity College for WH Smith the stationer. Between 1967 and 2007, the ISBN code had 10 digits, books published after 2007 have been assigned a 13-digit code.
Furthermore, each author has a unique ISO-number. An ISBN number is not necessary but it helps booksellers and libraries to identify and purchase books.
