Archives New Zealand’s new website has several improvements aimed to make it easier and quicker for you to find information.
We have organised the site based on how people search for information, which should make it easier for you to navigate through the site to find what you need. For example to find out how to look after your archives you would go to ‘Advice on Records and Archiving’. This section has resources to help you create and maintain your records and archives as well as tools to help you manage your information.
Our online services can now be accessed directly from the homepage. We’ve also added an area where you can go directly to information useful to the type of work or research you are doing. If you are a teacher, this link would take you directly to resources for schools or, if you are a family historian, to information on accessing genealogical records.
We’ve also installed a new search engine which will return results quicker and more accurately than before.
We will continue to review the site and look at ways we can make it easier for you to use as well as improve the services we offer online.
