Can't put your finger on it? Try DigitalNZ

From Standing Room Only, 2:26 pm on 7 April 2019

Searching for portraits of women leaning on a table - not only that, women sitting on the left hand side - is one of the more unusual searches carried out on the National Library's DigitalNZ site.

The online resource is a treasure trove for researchers, artists and writers, among others wanting instant access to the National Library's collection - and beyond, including overesas content.

It already offers access to more than 30-million objects, and counting.

The team keeps working on the site, coming up with new ideas and ways to make it easier to navigate.

Lynn Freeman meets DigitalNZ's Fiona Fieldsend, who tells her it aims to be a one-stop shop, bringing together digital content from all kinds of other sites and organisations.

DigitalNZ is part of the National Library of New Zealand. Also mentioned in the interview were a genealogy link - here - the Te Papa collection and Papers Past.
