International Standard Name Identifier


The International Standard Name Identifier (ISNI) is an ISO standard for uniquely identifying the public identities of contributors to media content.

ISNI will provide a tool for disambiguating names that might otherwise be confused, and will link the data about names that is collected and used in all sectors of the media industries.

MusicBrainz stores ISNIs for artists and labels.
