The Auckland Library Heritage Trust, in association with Auckland Council, is offering a new research scholarship using the Sir George Grey Special Collections at the Central City Library. Unique opportunities like this don't come along very often. So if you want to immerse yourself in one of the major collections in NZ, find out more about Grey’s wonderful legacy and focus on a research project, then look no further!

On another note, Heritage et AL is going on a bit of a holiday ... Don't worry, we will still be posting just not as frequently and will back to normal in mid July. Watch out for guest writers during this time and stay tuned!
