We aim to make New Zealand digital content more useful. This includes helping people use digital material from libraries, museums, government departments, publicly funded organisations, the private sector, and community groups. Use this site to:
Search across more than 25 million digital items to discover New Zealand treasures such as amazing aerial photos, old posters and memorabilia, newspaper clippings, artworks, and publications. Items are contributed from partners including Te Papa, the Alexander Turnbull Library, Auckland Art Gallery, Te Ara, NZ On Screen and many many more.
Create your own collection of New Zealand treasures to search across with our custom search builder and widget maker. Perfect for researchers, enthusiasts, or teachers who want to share collections of NZ material.
All the data used in this search service is available for free public use. Head on over to the developers section to grab an API key and get all the details.
We test and develop approaches that increase the amount of New Zealand digital content available for use. New Zealand is a small place with big ideas, and we need to create and digitise more New Zealand material so we can stay digitally connected to our own stories, creations, knowledge and culture.
We also operate the Make it Digital helpdesk for anyone who needs help digitising or creating material, and the Mix and Mash competition that encourages creative reuse of NZ digital content and data. Find out about all our services.
