The online portal DigitalNZ describes itself as "the search site for all things New Zealand" and with over 30 million items from more than 200 organizations in its collections, that claim is very likely justified. First launched in 2008 with an updated website released in 2017, DigitalNZ "aim[s] to be the simplest public website through which people can access reliable New Zealand material, some of which is trickier to find in other search engines." Visitors can search this project's vast collection by keyword directly from its main page, or they can go to the explore page to browse DigitalNZ by content category, usage rights (e.g. share, modify, commercial, or all rights reserved), date, place, and other factors. Readers can also group items together and build a story around them on DigitalNZ by adding their own captions and notes to the items, and the site highlights several stories on the main page as examples. To aid visitors in navigating and using its large collection, DigitalNZ also offers several help guides with search strategies, tips on creating stories, and more.
