‘Fresh collections and fascinating finds on DigitalNZ’ talk at National Library (Wellington, 18 June 2019)

DigitalNZ — what’s new

DigitalNZ brings together the digital collections of over 200 different organisations from across Aotearoa — the perfect site to peruse our collective digital taonga.

In this presentation, Thomasin Sleigh will introduce a selection of freshly added collections, share some interesting finds, as well as discuss more widely the complexities of metadata, discoverability, and the ways in which online search is changing.
