Rwanda Gains ISBN Agent

Huge news for Rwandan publishing - the country now has its first ISBN agent: Rwanda Library Services. Thanks to Nielsen for the update. For why this is such a big deal, check my article ISBNs Close the Book on Developing Writers. Here's to Rwanda contributing diversity to international literature!

[UPDATE Feb 2016: ISBNs from Rwanda Library Services cost FRW 2,000 (£1.80/$2.60) for one, or 10,000 (£9/$13) for ten. Both individuals and publishers can purchase them. For more on the subject of ISBNs in developing countries, see: ISBNs, PayPal, and How Technology is Failing Artists]
