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 are modernising CiP.
Cataloguing in Publication (CiP) is a free service offered to publishers 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.
Please note that a valid ISBN is required before proceeding with this form.
