DigitalNZ makes New Zealand digital content easier to find, share and use by bringing together the descriptive information (metadata) about the collections of over 150 organisations into one place. You can search across these collections with DigitalNZ search and, importantly, you can also build things with the collection metadata using the DigitalNZ API.
Accessing data through the API
This data can be accessed through the DigitalNZ API. You can use the API to search across the likes of titles, descriptions, dates, and creators of the material, as well as requesting thumbnails and the full metadata record for each item.
When using the API, you can choose to restrict it to a single source, such as Papers Past, the Library’s digitised newspapers.
