Arenda | 20820 comments Isbn's starting with 979 are isbn's, see and
Once there are no more 978 isbn's available, prefix 979 is used.

Empress (the_empress) Thanks Arena.
Is there a way for these to be converted to an ISBN? I usually use this tool:

Arenda | 20820 comments I believe to have read somewhere that converting is not possible for isbn13's starting with 979.
And that would make sense, as the isbn13's were created by adding 978 to existing isbn10's, and recalculating the last digit. The newer isbn13's that start with 979 are not derived from an isbn10.

Empress (the_empress) Thank you Arenda. I guess I prefer if they use non-convertible ISBN numbers rather than to have to reuse the rest -.-
