Dunedin Public Libraries has a collection of Standards for public use.

This collection covers both New Zealand Standards, joint Australian/New Zealand Standards and a small number of other miscellaneous standards publications pre-July 2019. We have retained superseded or withdrawn copies for historical use.

The collection is located on the 1st floor of the City Library, ask at the information desk and the staff will retrieve the item. Most items in the collection may be borrowed for 14 days.

Suggestions for Standards, not held by Dunedin Public Libraries, can be made and we will consider purchasing them. Standards that we do not hold can sometimes be loaned from other libraries in New Zealand through inter-library loan.

Our copies of the standards may not be reproduced in their entirety, but depending on permissions attached to each Standard, portions of a standard may be copied as per the Copyright Act 1994.

Standards New Zealand has some sponsored standards (mainly building related) that are available free online to the public for your use. Please refer to their website
