Cataloguing in Publication entry

Cataloguing in Publication

The Cataloguing in Publication (CiP) programme is for all publishers in New Zealand – small, medium and large publishers, and includes self-publishers.

Let libraries and booksellers know your book is coming

A CiP record is made for forthcoming publications, and is prepared by the National Library from information supplied by the publisher.

The record includes, as applicable, the title, author, series, subject, Dewey classification, and the proposed date of publication.

The Library adds the record to Publications New Zealand, the New Zealand national bibliography, where it can alert libraries and booksellers to the publication’s forthcoming release.

CiP standard statement

Once you have completed your CiP application form, you can add our standard statement to your publication, in English, or Te Reo Māori for Māori publications:

A catalogue record for this book is available from the National Library of New Zealand.


Kei te pātengi raraunga o Te Puna Mātauranga o Aotearoa te whakarārangi o tēnei pukapuka.

This statement is printed on the copyright/imprint page, normally the title page verso.
