Upgraded records
As part of the Maximising Te Puna Value programme, the National Library of New Zealand recently made available in the National Union Catalogue (NUC) its back files of pre-publication ISSN and ISBN records. We will continue to add these records and Cataloguing-in-Publication (CiP) records to the NUC as part of our standard workflow. All of these records are for resources that fit the scope of the New Zealand National Bibliography: http://nznuc-cataloguing.pbworks.com/w/page/57060042/Scope%20of%20the%20New%20Zealand%20National%20Bibliography
The National Library is now offering monthly MARC files of bibliographic records that have been upgraded to full records on the NUC. The files include:
·         records that were previously ISSN or ISBN or ISMN pre-publication records

  *   records that were previously CiP records
  *   records that were previously short records added by other libraries
Libraries will be able to use these MARC files to upgrade in their local systems short bibliographic records that they have brought in previously from the NUC. These records are only for material in scope for the New Zealand National Bibliography.

The files are available on the National Library website at http://beta.natlib.govt.nz/librarians/te-puna/te-puna-records


Tables of Contents (TOCs)
Since 2010 cataloguers at the National Library of New Zealand have been adding table of contents information to records for New Zealand published material in accordance with the policy available on the DescribeNZ wiki: http://nznuc-cataloguing.pbworks.com/w/page/38345509/National%20Library%20of%20New%20Zealand%20policy%20on%20Tables%20of%20Contents


A recent project to add TOCs to New Zealand and Pacific monographs published between 2005 and 2009 resulted in nearly 2000 TOCs being added to bibliographic records on the NUC. Ten Dewey-sequenced MARC files have been created and libraries will be able to use these MARC files to upgrade bibliographic records in their local systems that they have previously brought in from the NUC.

The MARC files of these records are available on the National Library website at http://beta.natlib.govt.nz/librarians/te-puna/te-puna-records


Book awards
The National Library of New Zealand has been addding notes to bibliographic records when a publication is the winner of a major New Zealand book award e.g. the New Zealand Post Book Awards. A MARC file of these records has been created and libraries will be able to use them to upgrade bibliographic records in their local systems that they have previously brought in from the NUC.

The MARC file is available on the National Library website at http://beta.natlib.govt.nz/librarians/te-puna/te-puna-records
