Upper Hutt Library

Upper Hutt Library's experiment with new technology and community particpation to preserve local knowledge history has made them the hub of the community.

Upper Hutt City Library is not a traditional public library as most people would expect.  It has become the hub of the Upper Hutt community and whilst it still provides the fundamental library services it also offers much more with at least 70 programmes running. The Library caters for the younger, more digitally savvy audience through to those with more life experience.

Hemi Rukuwai Jury - Workshop: “Mā Wai Rā E Taurima Te Marae I Waho Nei?” “Who Will Tend The Marae?”

The tūrangawaewae of many whānau, hapū and iwi are based around their marae. With the advancement of time, Māori are now asking "who is there to tend the marae?‟ Much Māori historical information is held within information institutions around the world. Whānau, hapū and iwi are going through processes to maintain, sustain and transform marae into repositories for the future. The transformation of these marae into whare taonga provides institutions with the opportunity to gain new and evolving information.

Smita Biswas and Stephanie Smith - Documenting Rena – Tauranga City Library Experience

On 5 October 2011 the Rena ran aground on the Astrolabe Reef, causing ecological mayhem and a storm of reaction in the community. In the New Zealand Room we collect material about major events in the western Bay of Plenty and this was no different: we were always going to try to capture different aspects of the Rena disaster. However, the crucial factor was the flood of born-digital material generated by this event, from sources as diverse as Maritime New Zealand and Twitter.
