Skeezix1000 persuaded me that off-topic external links like the ones below were an unhelpful addition to Library and Archives Canada; and consequently, I've moved them from the NLNZ article as well -- see Talk:Library and Archives Canada#Off-topic external links.
- NLNZ National Preservation Office
- British Library (BL), BL National Preservation Office
- National Library of Australia (NLA), NLA
National Preservation Office---> NLA Conservation Policy & Planning
- Library and Archives Canada/Bibliothèque et Archives Canada (LAC/BAC), LAC Gatineau Preservation Centre, BAC Centre de préservation de Gatineau (français)
- Library of Congress (LOC), LOC Preservation Directorate
In this context, I see the following citation as plausibly relevant to improved articles about NLNZ, LAC, etc.:
- The need for national entities like the National Preservation Office (NPO) in the British Library has been documented in surveys conducted by the International Federation of Library Associations and Institutions (IFLA) Section on Preservation & Conservation and by the Ligue Internationale des Bibliothèques Européennes de Recherches. Other than the United Kingdom, at least seven other countries have set up an entity similar to the NPO, including Canada and New Zealand.<:ref>[:http://www.ifla.org/IV/ifla63/63foom.htm Foot, Mirjam. (1997) "Paper: Towards a National Preservation Policy,"] 63rd IFLA General Conference (Copenhagen).<:/ref>
Nevertheless, Skeezix1000 has convinced me that adding off-topic external links was an unworkable gesture. Maybe there is still some way to build on misplaced good intentions ...? --Tenmei (talk) 01:46, 21 February 2008 (UTC)
We should have a section on the physical building itself.
Instructions for generating persisent URLs to National Library of New Zealand records
The National Library of New Zealand has an excellent collection of New Zealand books, pamphlets, sound recordings, and similar. Unfortunately the catalogue doesn't make it easy to create persistent URLs into the catalogue for use in references. This is a quick description of how to generate such URLs.
- Go to http://nlnzcat.natlib.govt.nz and search by author, title or keyword to find the record you're after.
- Once you've found an item you want to link to, click on "Detailed View"
- At the bottom of the list of details there is a "Record number" such as Record number: 843492
- Append this record number to the URL "http://nlnzcat.natlib.govt.nz/cgi-bin/Pwebrecon.cgi?BBID=" in this case http://nlnzcat.natlib.govt.nz/cgi-bin/Pwebrecon.cgi?BBID=843492
- This is the persistent URL to use for this record.
