The New Zealand National Union Catalogue (NUC)
Contains bibliographic records with holdings for resources held in New Zealand libraries. Many libraries are 'deeplinked' so users can click through to the local library catalogue to see whether the item is on the shelf or not. It also contains Library of Congress Subject Headings and Name Authorities. The information in the NUC supports the New Zealand Interloan Scheme.
Index New Zealand (INNZ)
Index New Zealand is a searchable database that contains abstracts and descriptions of articles from about 1000 New Zealand periodicals and newspapers published from the 1950s to the present day.
