The National Library of New Zealand is here to help you access and use the collective knowledge of the nation.
It's our job to collect, connect, and co-create knowledge to power New Zealand.
* Collect: New Zealand's documentary taonga in words, sounds and pictures are collected, protected and accessible
* Connect: New Zealanders can easily access national and international resources through knowledge networks
* Co-create: New Zealanders working together to turn knowledge into value
We're located in Wellington, New Zealand (close to the Beehive and Parliament Buildings) and have branches and offices throughout the country.

The National Library of NZ on The Commons
We're very proud to be part of The Commons on Flickr. We went live in November 2008 with a selection of 120 historical photographs from the Alexander Turnbull Library, the research library within the National Library.
Our (other) Flickr photostream
In June 2007 we began posting a selection of our collection images onto Flickr as a pilot. We hope to see that this helps new people discover some of the wonderful material in our collections, from photos of the Beatles and the Rolling Stones on tour in New Zealand to the Hastings Blossom Festival.
