About  The  Bookshelf

The Bookshelf (Digitised Texts Collection) has been developed by staff at The University of Auckland Library
as a place to provide keyword-searchable online versions of a variety of books, journals and newsletters. Selection criteria include relevance for New Zealand and Pacific studies, existing availability and functionality online, and anticipated usage. Material created at the University of Auckland is given further priority.  

The books have been digitised with PDF files corresponding to each section or chapter for easier downloading.

The project uses AABBYY FineReader software to capture images of original pages and convert them to text-behind-image PDF files. Each PDF file incorporates Dublin Core metadata relating to the book or journal and the individual chapter or journal article.

All monographs and serials in the Bookshelf Collection are catalogued in the University of Auckland Library Catalogue and on Te Puna and WorldCat.
