About this site

This website is provided and run by the National Library of New Zealand Te Puna Mātauranga o Aotearoa.

Papers Past was launched in 2001, with 250,000 pages from historic New Zealand newspapers. New titles have been added regularly since then, and the whole site was re-launched in 2007, with a new interface that added full text search for a third of the collection. The whole collection was made searchable by mid-2009.
