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 29 million digital items to discover New Zealand treasures such as amazing aerial photos, 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.
While exploring our partners' content you can select favourite items to save into sets. This enables you to group results in one meaningful place. It's easy to share your collections with friends, family, and classmates. Learn more about collecting and sharing on DigitalNZ
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.
