Research Tools: Heritage New Zealand Releases a Revamped Archaeological Reports Digital Library

From Heritage New Zealand:

Heritage New Zealand has revamped its Archaeological Reports Digital Library and is launching it today.

The digital library currently contains over 7500 reports dating from the 1950s until today, with more reports being added all the time.  These reports have been available on request since 2007; however the upgrade now means that searching the library is far easier and reports are able to be directly accessed.


Users of the digital library can search reports by keyword – including geographical location – as well as other filters like report date, author, iwi, year published and territorial local authority.


Powered by Greenstone, a suite of software for building and distributing digital library collections, the online Archaeological Reports Digital Library will be constantly updated as new reports are added to the library.will be constantly updated as new reports are added to the library.
