The e-TerbitS system is a Sarawak State Library initiative through the KFA hybrid project between Sarawak State Library and the National Library of Malaysia. The project aimed to decentralize the functions to process application of the International Standard Book Number (ISBN). This supports Sarawak State Library’s strategic planning through the use of Balance Score Card (BSC) that lead towards Knowledge Management Excellence, Service Excellence and Collaboration Excellence.
The main objective of this system is to enable Sarawak State Library to grant and approve International Standard Book Number (ISBN) application through an online system. This is done under the grant by the National Library of Malaysia as the sole agency to control the production of international standard numbers in Malaysia.
The advantage of the e-TerbitS is the number will be generated directly from the system. In addition, the system is able to store publishers and publishing information in Sarawak. (Subject to applicable terms and conditions).
