We are currently consulting on a discussion document that will be used to develop a long-term strategy for Archives New Zealand. Your views are important to us. To view the discussion document and make a submission by 5pm, 4 November 2016, please visit the Archives 2057 page.

Why are we taking such a long-term view? The national archive needs to be focussed on the long term to ensure the record of government is available in the future. As we face the challenges of the born-digital era, our performance as a regulator today has a major impact on government’s information assets into the future. These challenges impact information managers, iwi, researchers, academics, community archivists and our own staff. Our stakeholders are asking us to step up and take a stronger leadership role.

The Chief Archivist will be leading sessions on the discussion document, providing a face to face opportunity to discuss your feedback or learn more about the work to date.

Please and provide your feedback by 5pm on 4 November 2016. If you prefer to email a submission, or wish to attend one of the meetings above, please email Archives2057@dia.govt.nz
