ISTC - International Standard Text Code The International Standard Text Code (ISTC) is a numbering system for the unique identification of text-based works; the term “work” can refer to any content appearing in conventional printed books, audio-books, static e-books or enhanced digital books, as well as content which might appear in a newspaper or journal. The ISTC provides sales analysis systems, retail websites, library catalogues and other bibliographic systems with a method of automatically linking together publications of the “same content” and/or “related content”, thus improving discoverability of products and efficiencies. An ISTC number is the link between a user’s search for a piece of content and the ultimate sale or loan of a publication.
