Please note that the National Library of Australia no longer provides publishers with a CiP entry to print in their publications. See Changes to the CiP service for more information on how we have modernised this service.
The Prepublication Data Service (formerly Cataloguing in Publication) is a free service offered by the National Library of Australia.
This service is for Australian publishers and self-publishing authors who want the details of their upcoming publications made available to Australian libraries, library suppliers, and other members of the book industry for acquisition purposes.
The user guide contains useful information about the Prepublication Data Service and the application process.
