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.

Using the site, you can browse a new releases showcase, search by title, media, subject and author, and subscribe to an RSS feed of recent additions.

Accessing Publications New Zealand

From early July 2012, the current Publications New Zealand website is being retired. Instead, you'll be able to use the National Library Beta to search the National Bibliography and use Publications NZ services.

Libraries that are registered users of Te Puna Web Services can also access the national bibliography through the National Union Catalogue.

Creating a report of New Zealand publications

You can generate reports using the reports function on Publications New Zealand.

The reports are fully customisable: for example, you could make a report of recent additions to the National Bibliography of all works by a certain author, or the latest additions in a particular subject. You can generate reports in your choice of format: PDF, Excel spreadsheet, XML and CSV.
