Topic: Launching Kete Tararua

Topic type:

We made this announcement on the Tararua District Library blog.

Tararua District Library is proud to announce the launch of Kete Tararua.

Kete Tararua is an online digital repository of media generated and uploaded by our community. Here you will find stories, photos, videos and audio of the land and people of Tararua. Our aim is to bring these stories together so that we can share with each other, Aotearoa New Zealand and the world.

The Kete is brought to you by the Tararua District Library, with the support of the National Library of New Zealand and the Aotearoa Peoples Network Kaharoa [APNK] and utilises open source software first developed by Katipo Communications and the Horowhenua Library Trust.

Everybody with media or stories about Tararua is more than welcome to freely contribute to the Kete by registering. If you have any questions, or wish for advice as to how to contribute, please do not hesitate to contact us via the Tararua Library Service.

As part of the Kete the APNK has supplied the library with a scanner. The scanner is currently being housed at Dannevirke Library, but will be circulated around the district libraries. Anybody may use the scanner to digitise their photos and other media.

The URL for our new Kete is: http://ketetararua.peoplesnetworknz.info/

For further information either contact your local community library or Michael Parry, Technical Services Librarian
