Presented to the House of Representatives pursuant to section 44 (1) of the Public Finance Act 1989.

E ngä mana, e ngä waka, e ngä reo; tënä koutou.

Ki ngä tini aituä kua wehe atu ki te pö, haere atu;

ko rätau ki a rätau, ko tätau te hunga ora ki a tätau.

Tënä anö tätau katoa.

Ko te hau o mihi tënei e wawara nei ki a koutou kua whai wähi ki ënei tuhinga.

Minister’s Foreword

This year has seen the National Library working actively with its communities of interest and initiating projects across the Government’s key themes: economic transformation; national identity; and families –
young and old.

The Public Libraries Summit held in Wellington in February 2007 brought more than 100 leaders from central and local government, library and information professionals, and prominent media commentators together. This energetic and engaging event reinforced the vital role that libraries play in building connections for the skilled and educated people and organisations, which underpin thriving economies as well as the important contribution that libraries make towards the cultural well-being of our nation.

The National Library supports young New Zealanders and their educators by working closely with schools and kura and by contributing to the development of a Government information and communications technology strategy and framework for the education sector. The educational achievement of young New Zealanders is crucial to New Zealand’s future social and economic development and the Library’s close working relationships across the education sector is particularly valuable in this area.

There has been significant progress made in making the National Library collections, especially those of the Alexander Turnbull Library, more available to people throughout New Zealand while continuing to ensure their protection for future generations; in this context digitisation of heritage material is a powerful tool.

The New Zealand Digital Content Strategy – to be launched in September 2007 – will unlock these resources and more of New Zealand’s rich layers of content and help all New Zealanders to access the information that is important to their lives, businesses and cultural identities.

Hon Judith Tizard
Minister Responsible for the National Library

National Librarian’s Comment

E ngä iwi, e ngä karangatanga, te iti me te rahi, tënä koutou, tënä tätau katoa.

Welcome to the 2007 Annual Report of the National Library of New Zealand Te Puna Mätauranga o Aotearoa. This year we celebrate 12 months of change and development, innovation and creativity, new and exciting projects, and partnerships.

The Year in Review

To begin, I would like to acknowledge Margaret Calder, who left the Library in March 2007 after 16 years as the Chief Librarian of the Alexander Turnbull Library. Her contribution to maintaining New Zealand’s richest heritage collection has been of immense value. I also welcome Chris Szekely, the new Chief Librarian, who I know will make an enormous contribution. We are delighted to welcome Chris.

Working with other organisations is a particular strength of the National Library of New Zealand. This year key strategic partnerships have enabled the Library to strengthen New Zealand’s knowledge systems in a very significant way. Joining KAREN (the Kiwi Advanced Research and Education Network), which is at the cutting edge of information and communications technology (ICT) development, is one such example. This move is expected to have a sizeable impact on the library sector and the way the National Library connects with the education and research sectors.

The launch of the New Zealand Digital Content Strategy will also impact on libraries. One of the initiatives of the New Zealand Digital Content Strategy is the Aotearoa New Zealand People’s Network, a fantastic service that will see New Zealanders able to connect to high-speed broadband at their local libraries. This project, inspired by the successful United Kingdom People’s Network, will enable all citizens to create and share content with the help of trained librarians. Increasingly, they will be able to contribute their community stories to an emerging joined-up network of content.

A highlight of 2006/2007 for me has been the way that our understanding of digital policy has progressed.

The development of the New Zealand Digital Content Strategy, led by the National Library, has really demonstrated the importance of the digital environment. It will support communities, businesses and government in the creation, sharing and preserving of digital content.

This year we partnered with the American-based organisation, the Online Computer Library Centre. This is a very exciting development for New Zealand libraries as it means that the libraries of New Zealand will have access to a great range of material, and that the rich holdings of New Zealand libraries will become accessible to web users around the world.

The Public Libraries Summit held in February 2007 has already had a far-reaching effect, with the public library sector exploring how it might speak as ‘one voice’ to deliver 21st century library services in New Zealand. My thanks go to the Library and Information Advisory Commission and Local Government New Zealand for their leadership and support in this area.

The Library’s partnership work has also been recognised this year with a nomination for our Web Curator Tool (created with the British Library) in the Digital Preservation category of the UK Conservation Awards.

What’s Next?

The coming year is also an exciting one. The National Library will begin to administer the Government’s new Poet Laureate Award.

The Library will continue to transform and change as we carry out our ten-year strategy: New Generation National Library: Strategic Directions to 2017.

We also have ambitious plans that include the phase 2 rollout of the Aotearoa New Zealand People’s Network, building the National Digital Heritage Archive, and working with the National Digital Forum to increase the volume of digital content available online through a single search. The National Library of New Zealand collects, preserves and provides access to New Zealand’s documentary heritage material at the Library in Wellington, through New Zealand schools, and online at

The National Library is a storehouse of treasures. The collections hold maps, music scores, CDs, DVDs and videos, every book, newspaper or magazine published in New Zealand, and the largest music collection in the country.

In our National Children’s Collection we have a range of books, written from 1942 onwards, for children and young people. The Dorothy Neal White Collection has more than 7000 children’s books that were published pre-1940. The Susan Price Collection contains a range of books for nine to eighteen-year-olds.

One of the most popular areas in the main National Library building in
Wellington is our family history service. Here people discover their heritage
using resources like birth, death and marriage records, electoral rolls,
and military and shipping indexes.

The National Library’s Schools Collection is available to all New Zealand teachers, student teachers and home-schoolers. With more than half a million books, videos, picture packs, audiotapes, DVDs and CD-ROMs, we’re sure we can help young New Zealanders to learn.

About the Alexander Turnbull Library

The Alexander Turnbull Library is a key part of the National Library –
‘a library within a library’, it holds New Zealand’s national documentary heritage collections.

Within these collections are a comprehensive range of New Zealand’s publications, as well as those by New Zealanders or about New Zealand.
The collections hold an extensive selection of Pacific-published materials.

Original unpublished materials – including photographs, paintings, drawings and prints, oral histories, manuscripts and archives, maps and ephemera relating to New Zealand, Antarctica and the Pacific – are also collected.

In addition, the Alexander Turnbull Library holds other published material, including one of the finest collections in the world relating to John Milton. Special collections of rare books and fine printing are also a strength.

The Turnbull Library takes its name from Alexander Horsburgh Turnbull
(1868-1918), a wealthy Wellington merchant who bequeathed his collection
of books, manuscripts, photographs, paintings and sketches to the Crown
in 1918.

Since the founding of the Alexander Turnbull Library, the collections have grown through donation, purchase and legal deposit.

Chief librarian’s comment

Talofa lava, kia orana, malo e lelei, ni sa bula, fakaalofa lahi atu, ni hao, tënä koutou, tënä koutou, kia ora tätau katoa.

For all the people of New Zealand

The Chief Librarian of the Alexander Turnbull Library is a statutory role requiring the incumbent to exercise delegated powers to preserve, protect, develop and make accessible the Turnbull Library’s collections for all the people of Zealand. This Annual Report highlights some of the activities that illustrate the ways that the Library delivered on this purpose.

Over 63,000 items were entered into the Turnbull collections over the last year. Many of the significant and diverse acquisitions are listed here, ranging from artworks by George French Angas, Charles Heaphy and Peter McIntyre, to sound recordings by Allison Durbin, Ray Columbus and The Chicks, and the papers of Dr Michael King, Sir Apirana Ngata and Denis Glover. The acquisition of one collection item in particular, the White’s Aviation photograph collection, is especially notable as it comprises some 90,000 negatives and 50,000 prints, a rich pictorial resource substantially strengthening the Library’s coverage of 20th century New Zealand.

Turnbull Library collections are developed through an active purchasing programme, the legal deposit scheme, and more recently a web harvesting process. Also, in keeping with the spirit of the Library’s original benefactor, many items are received through thoughtful donations. My thanks go to the donors who contributed to the collections over the last year, along with my assurance that the material will be appropriately cared for and made accessible in keeping with donor wishes.

Preserving New Zealand’s digital memory for future generations is a tremendous challenge. Turnbull has modestly collected digital material for a number of years, and anticipates that this will be a major area of growth and focus. Numerous Turnbull staff work on teams drawn from across the National Library to develop the platform for the National Digital Heritage Archive, so that digital items may be preserved in perpetuity. This is a major and internationally ground-breaking undertaking.

Turnbull Library continues to play an essential role in supporting the endeavours of New Zealand scholars, writers and researchers. Over 500 books, theses, articles and websites were published, which drew directly on Turnbull collections. Some 27,000 researchers were assisted by staff directly, while many thousands more used the Library online.

I am pleased to acknowledge the specialist expertise of the staff at Alexander Turnbull Library. Their preservation, curatorial, technical and professional skills serve to ensure that the collections are indeed protected, preserved, developed and made accessible. In this regard I am indebted to my predecessor, Margaret Calder who developed and led the Turnbull team for sixteen years. I look forward to continuing this work, maintaining the Turnbull’s role as the country’s pre-eminent heritage research library, and promoting its relevance for all the people of New Zealand.
