Te Puna Cataloguing

Te Puna members can use a variety of cataloguing interfaces and tools to access the latest bibliographic and holdings records, held in New Zealand and internationally, for your own catalogues.

WorldShare Metadata Services

Te Puna member libraries have access to an instance of WorldShare Metadata Services, which contains the following OCLC cataloguing tools:

  • Record Manager for record by record cataloguing
  • Collection Manager for managing e-resources and bulk cataloguing processes
