New Zealand Herald on Papers Past

The New Zealand Herald (1863-1884) is now searchable online through the National Library of New Zealand Te Puna Mātauranga O Aotearoa's Papers Past. The culmination of this joint project between the National Library and Auckland Libraries was launched at the Central City Library branch last night.

Contents currently include 6,554 issues and nearly 50,000 pages, with further releases planned in the future. Find out more.

Be sure to check out the Auckland Star (1870-1945), which is also available through Papers Past.

  2. Radio New Zealand have recently had a segment on Papers Past. During the interview, host Kathryn Ryan talks to Gavin Ellis, current political science lecturer and former Editor of the NZ Herald.

    Then click on Thursday 9th August and then click on the final segment ('Media with Gavin Ellis'). The Papers Past discussion starts at about 3'20" in, and runs for about four minutes.
