New Zealand official publications
Several New Zealand Government official publications are frequently quoted by their abbreviation; they have a redirect here so that the source does not need to be defined further. Past copies of most by year or session are held in bound volumes in major public libraries.
AJHR, AtoJs, or Appendix to the Journal of the House of Representatives
The Appendix to the Journal of the House of Representatives is published annually or by each sitting of Parliament. It includes annual reports of government departments, and various special reports e.g. reports of commissions or Royal Commissions.
Most of the 1862 to 1879 volumes of AJHR have been digitised and are available online at AtoJsOnline.
NZOYB or New Zealand Official Yearbook
NZG or New Zealand Gazettes
NZPD or New Zealand Parliamentary Debates
The New Zealand Parliamentary Debates (Hansard) is published daily when Parliament is in session. Available online, see Hansard.
AJLC or Appendix to the Journal of the Legislative Council
