The Community Archive accepts contributions from individuals and organisations who hold archives and manuscripts with a substantially New Zealand focus.
Collections we accept
All manuscript and archive collections located in New Zealand, or New Zealand content held elsewhere, may be reported to NRAM. Copies (for instance microfilm and photocopies) may be reported, so long as the institution concerned is responsible for maintaining information about the location of the original item. Inclusion of multiple copies is at NRAM‘s discretion. Collections may contain material such as petitions, audio and videotapes, computer disks ... in fact anything that has been decided as having permanent value.
Collections we can't accept
Publications such as books, newspapers, magazines, etc, are generally not regarded as archives. However, we are happy to discuss inclusion of this type of material if it forms a part of a larger 'group' or 'fonds'.
