Digital preservation team

The National Library's Preservation Research & Consultancy team is responsible for the long-term authenticity and integrity of the National Library’s digital collections.

What we do

The Preservation Research & Consultancy team work (Matapoporetanga, Rangahau me te Mātanga) to ensure that the National Library's digital collections are preserved and accessible now and in the future. The team:
