Contributor Benefits

The Community Archive provides contributing organisations with a free and professional looking web presence, including a detailed organisation profile, full contact details, the ability to publish your collections and items, and feedback mechanisms.

There are many benefits to registering as a contributor, including:

  • Excellent exposure through web search engines
  • Control over your profile and collection information
  • International descriptive standards with a high-level of data validation
  • Support and advice from Archives New Zealand's Community Archives team

Becoming a contributor is easy. And once you're signed up, you can make information about your organisation and collections available to a wide audience. The Community Archive is very visible to search engines, giving the greatest possible exposure to the materials it contains. This may be especially useful if you do not have your own web site already. Raising your profile may also help you attract more donations and grant funding.
