The purpose of the National Library is to enrich the cultural and economic life of New Zealand and its interchange with other nations.

National Library on Flickr

We post a selection of our collection images onto Flickr as a way of introducing our collections to the public and helping people discover new material. Many more of our images are available on Timeframes .

National Library NZ on The Commons

In November 2008 the National Library joined The Commons on Flickr. The purpose of The Commons is to bring the treasures of the world's public photography collections to the attention of a wider audience, and to enrich those collections through the knowledge and enthusiasm of this audience.

All the photographs we add to The Commons are posted under a 'No known copyright restrictions' licence.
