Real Gold: Treasures of Auckland Libraries is an online version of the exhibition that accompanies the book of the same name. The exhibition is a selection of the treasures that feature in the book and is available for viewing in Special Collections on the 2nd floor of the Central City Library from 12 November 2007 until 29 February 2008. It shows the range and depth of the library's collections, beginning with the donation of rare books and manuscripts by Sir George Grey in 1887 and developing over the years with further significant gifts and purchases.

The book, with text by Iain Sharp and full colour photographs by Haruhiko Sameshima, can be purchased for $20 from Special Collections or through the Auckland Libraries website.
