About this beta

Welcome to, the next step in DigitalNZ’s evolution. Here we’re developing and testing new and improved ways for you to find, share, and use amazing New Zealand content. As with the current, you can browse and search photos, artworks, journals, news reports artefacts, and many other types of material, from nearly 200 organisations. But we also have a number of other exciting services planned.

In 2016 we’re developing a fresh, more user-friendly and lovely-to-look-at version of We’re starting with a very basic version of the website and we’ll regularly make both small and substantial changes to this website throughout 2016 and beyond. These changes will often be based on your feedback, so any thoughts you have for us are hugely helpful and will feed directly into the site’s development.

You can let us know what you think by clicking the “Feedback” button on the lower right-hand corner of this page, or email us at We’d love to hear from you.

Release notes

During this process we’ll be tracking our work here in our release notes. These notes refer to parts of the site that may not be quite right, and give you an idea of what is coming next.

If you’re concerned that we’re missing something, or a part of the site isn’t working properly, check the release notes first, as it is likely that we’re working on it and an update will be released soon.
