International Standard Numbering System-Philippine Online Application System Stakeholders Application Testing

The National Library of the Philippines (NLP), through the efforts of the Bibliographic Services Division (BSD) and the Information Technology Division (ITD) conducted a stakeholders meeting entitled International Standard Numbering System-Philippine Online Application System (INS-POAS) Stakeholders Application Testing on 26 April 2021 via Zoom.

 

Selected publishers joined the test run of the new application system, intending to provide information on how to access and utilize the INS-POAS. It also aimed to gather feedback from the participating publishers for the improvement and necessary adjustment of the system before its formal launching on 25 June 2021, while the full implementation of the application system will be on 1 July 2021.

 

Considered as one of the milestones on the 40th Year of the Philippine Numbering System, the INS-POAS is also the first transactional system developed by NLP. Through its implementation, publishers will be provided with better services such as; less physical application, an easy update on publisher’s status and application information, system documentation, monitoring of the released number, and an alternative platform for publishers to promote their publications.

 

As NLP Director Cesar Gilbert Q. Adriano states in his opening message the NLP acknowledges the importance of the publishing industry to continue and develop, thus NLP further improves its services and mitigates other risks.  While, Assistant Director Edgardo B. Quiros emphasizes the other benefits of the system in the publishing industry to encourage them and continue to create, develop and publish.
