The association organises a regular series of antiquarian book fairs in major cities.
Like many national associations, ANZAAB is affiliated with the International League of Antiquarian Booksellers. Like other national associations it sets out standards of commercial behaviour to which its members voluntarily adhere. It encourages the observance of the courtesies and honourable practices traditionally associated with the trade. In particular, ANZAAB seeks to encourage its members to achieve high standards of accuracy in descriptions of materials offered for sale.
