National Library of New Zealand
Spent some time last week with Lisa Allcott, from The National Library, who gave us a tour of their revamped web site. There are many very relevant and worthwhile resources to be accessed, especially in the Digital Collection. A couple that I found fascinating were Discover and Matapihi. Collections include digital photos, sound and object archives that would add value to learning experiences in a variety of contexts. Plus some have options to view objects in a full 360° rotation.
There are also links to books by NZ authors that are able to be read online through the International Children’s Digital Library. See links to these collections plus an overview of some key online resources available to NZ schools on our cluster wiki.
