National Libraries of China, New Zealand Work Together to Preserve Historic Treasures
Experts from the National Library of China could soon be helping to preserve treasures in New Zealand’s National Library under an agreement signed by the two institutions, said a statement from the National Library of New Zealand on Thursday.
The two national libraries had signed a new five-year Arrangement on Cooperation, to share knowledge and information in some joint areas of interest, according to the statement.
The arrangement covered such areas as digital library activities, including digitization of materials, digital access to information and digital preservation, as well as the protection of ancient or rare books.
