National Library’s web harvest

The National Library is undertaking a web harvest because:

The National Library exists to preserve New Zealand’s social and cultural history, whether in the form of books, newspapers and photographs, or of websites, blogs and videos.

The New Zealand Web Harvest 2010 harvest recognises the importance of the internet in all areas of New Zealand society and culture by taking a ‘snapshot’ of the New Zealand internet in May 2010.

The harvest will run for approximately for a couple of weeks from May 12 and will only collect publicly viewable web content.

The harvest will pick up every domain in the .nz country code, and some others from .com, .net and .org.

More information and a link to the nomination form if you have a blog, want it  harvested and it doesn’t have a .nz address, are at the link above.
