  • Using INNZ

    Using INNZ, you can find abstracts and descriptions of articles that reflect the social, historical, political, scientific and economic issues in Aotearoa New Zealand and the South Pacific now and in recent history.

    We add around 3000 new records monthly from 400 current titles, and the database now contains over 900,000 records. We index new articles within days of publication. Articles are included if they are half a page of text or more.

    Subjects covered include agriculture, the arts, current affairs, the environment, the humanities, science, social research and much more.

    INNZ also indexes book reviews, poems, short stories and biographical articles.

    We provide abstracts for articles written in te reo Māori in both te reo Māori and English. Articles written in te reo and about Māori are indexed with headings taken from Ngā Upoko Tukutuku/Māori Subject Headings and the Iwi Hapū Names List.

  • Finding articles

    Look for articles by searching with a title, author, subject, or keyword. You can then filter your search by date, resource type, (such as magazine, newspaper, or research article), language (Māori or English), genre, whether the full text is online, etc.

    Articles may be:

    • print only
    • print with full-text online access
    • print with restricted online access
    • full-text online access only
    • restricted online access only.

    Wherever possible we provide a link to a full-text, online version of the article, usually through:

    • National Library archived copies
    • website links
    • some EPIC authenticated access.

    If the article is print only, or the link is to an online article where ‘Access restrictions may apply’ (look in the Details tab either towards the bottom of the record or under Links to see whether it's restricted), you can still request a copy under educational copyright.
