ISMN Norway

ISMN (International Standard Music Number) is a numerical combination used to identify notated music – prints – scores, parts, etc. – whether they are available for sale, rental, or free of charge.

The purpose of ISMN is to give the publication a unique identity. This makes the handling of notated music easier for both publishers, distributors, and libraries. ISMN also forms the basis for labelling sheet music with GTIN/EAN barcodes.
