Online Library Essentials catalogues

Online Library Essentials catalogues are a quick and efficient option to access core standards for your business or organisation. Here’s how you’ll benefit from using them:

Convenient. Catalogues are quick, easy-to-use groups of standards you can access online 24/7 through the Online Library service on the Standards New Zealand website.

Up to date. You’ll always see the most up to date standards and can also access many superseded versions of the key standards you need.

Affordable. We offer an annual subscription at a reduced rate significantly less than the same group of hard copy standards.

Flexible. You can add new standards to your subscription at any time. Relevant charges will apply.

Relevant. Online Library Essentials catalogues have been compiled in association with industry bodies. They contain the most relevant groups of standards for those working in particular industries and sectors. The range of these catalogues will be extended over time. If your industry would like an Online Essentials catalogue created call 0800 782 632 or email

Reviewed annually. We review each catalogue with the relevant industry body each year to ensure it continues to feature the standards you need. If additional standards are added, these will be made available to you immediately, but your subscription will only be updated at the time of your anniversary.

Support. We offer Online Library user guides available. Call 0800 782 632 or email
