Current & Historical Newspapers

NZMS has preserved on film over 12 MILLION newspaper images (and we estimate there have only been about 30million pages produced to date!).  A significant part of this volume has been commissioned by the National Library of New Zealand, we have undertaken an annual preservation microfilming programme for them since 1995.

We manage modern and retrospective filming programmes for many institutions including public libraries, universities, historical societies and other organisations that want their regional and community newspapers preserved via microfilm.  Libraries can elect to sell analogue or digital copies of the films in order to recoup some of their costs and we can also provide this service.
