Help getting into Archives New Zealand's collections
“Archway is so difficult to use”. How often have you heard or uttered this cry? Archives New Zealand’s vast and complex collections are not catalogued like library materials. They are listed in a unique archival manner, and identifying records for your research can often be difficult. A good working knowledge of the main listing system, Archway, removes some of the hit-and-miss.
In this talk Donal Raethel will look at some of the opportunities, idiosyncrasies and limitations of Archway and some strategies to optimise your research.
