New Zealand Authorities in MARC, July 2016:

This is the final monthly list of authority records in MARC format because of the replacement of Voyager by Alma in August 2016.  

As an added service, we are now including an attached set of files containing authority records in MARC format. These files include authority records created or changed by National Library cataloguers over the previous month. We hope you find these records useful should you choose to load them back into your local catalogue.

Note: To open, save to a local file, then open in NotePad.
