The list of books and other items to be published soon opens under the link PUBLISHING SOON on the menu bar of the online catalogue ESTER.
The list is compiled by the Estonian ISBN agency, ISMN agency and the ISSN Centre, all three operating at the National Library of Estonia. When a standard number is assigned to a forthcoming publication, a record with a corresponding note is compiled and entered in ESTER. When the item has been published and received by the National Library of Estonia, a full record is compiled and the publication is entered in the Estonian National Bibliography database ERB and in the online publication New Estonian Books maintained in the same environment. For an extended search, use the option Modify Search. Subject to the receipt of the publication by different libraries, the records will be supplemented by item information.
