Papers Past archive expanding into the 1990s

From Afternoons with Jesse Mulligan, 1:28 pm on 1 June 2021

Heard of Papers Past?

It really is the little archive that could. It's a project run by Te Puna Mātauranga o Aotearoa The National Library which digitises newspapers, magazines and all sorts of other things so anyone can access them. And in exciting news they're partnering with Christchurch newspaper The Press to digitise the paper's archives up to 1995! The archive's service manager Emerson Vandy joins Jesse to explain the significance of the move.
