Publications NZ Metadata


From the website:

The Publications New Zealand Metadata Dataset contains bibliographic records of books, periodicals, films, music and other material published in New Zealand, or with a significant New Zealand content. The records were originally created by the National Library of New Zealand, with a small number of contributions from the libraries of New Zealand through Te Puna.

Bibiliographic records and book cover images used under licence by the National Library have been excluded from this dataset release.

The current dataset was extracted on 22 February 2011, and contains approximately 350,000 records. Records are provided in 2 formats: MARC and MARCXML - both being library catalogue record standards.


The each zip archive actually contains a README file along the data in gzipped format. Therefore, you will need a decompression tool that supports both formats.
