In case you haven’t heard and/or noticed, Papers Past has recently been updated with new titles and all existing titles have been fully digitised and are now searchable. What’s more, it’s also heaps (heaps I say) faster.
Included in the new titles is NZ Truth up to 1930, making it the most recent newspaper they have. Tacky as it seems, it’s one of those muck-raking papers that broke news in spite of itself. And as a muck-raker it’ll provide a rich source for social history.
The new titles are:
• Ashburton Guardian
• Ellesmere Guardian
• Kai Tiaki: the Journal of the Nurses of New Zealand
• North Otago Times
• NZ Truth
• Otautau Standard and Wallace County Chronicle
• Oxford Observer
• Poverty Bay Herald
• Victoria Times
• Waikato Times
There’s more information at the National Library website. A wonderful resource just got even better.
