Publications New Zealand
Publications New Zealand is New Zealand's national bibliography. It contains descriptions of books, periodicals, films, music and other material published in New Zealand, or with a significant New Zealand content, and links to libraries where you can find each item.
Build a bibliography
You can build reports that list the latest additions, works by a particular author, or works that match a particular subject.
Your feedback sought
As part of the National Library’s replacement of the systems it uses to create the New Zealand Libraries’ Catalogue, the Build a Bibliography service will be ceasing.
Once we change systems, during May, you will still be able to search the set of records which is Publications New Zealand. To help ensure that we can meet your needs we are interested in finding out how you use the Build a Bibliography service.
If you use the service can you please let us know what you use it for and which of the search options you particularly value.
Please email this information to Jenny.McDonald@dia.govt.nz
