     Using National Bibliography Numbers as Uniform Resource Names
                   draft-hakala-urn-nbn-rfc3188bis-02

Abstract

   National Bibliography Numbers (NBNs) are used by the national
   libraries and other organizations in order to identify resources in
   their collections.  NBNs are usually applied to resources that are
   not catered for by established (standard) identifier systems such as
   ISBN.

   A URN (Uniform Resource Names) namespace for NBNs was established in
   2001 in RFC 3188.  Since then, a number of European national
   libraries have implemented URN:NBN-based systems.

   This document replaces RFC 3188 and defines how NBNs can be supported
   within the updated URN framework.  A revised namespace registration
   (version 4) compliant to RFC 8141 is included.
