We have a planned outage this weekend. Papers Past, AtoJs Online, Natlib, He Tohu, Te Puna Foundation, and DigitalNZ (including the API) will all be impacted from 5pm Saturday 24 (NZST) to midday Sunday 25. Papers Past will remain mostly available through this time, so please feel free to use the site, but you might see a few things (like search settings or language selection) behaving differently to normal around the outage period. Things will be back to normal on Sunday afternoon.×
