Totally Unique Opportunities -
DIGITAL HERITAGE PRESERVATION

The vision of the National Library is to connect New Zealanders with
information important to all aspects of their lives. To achieve our vision
we are embracing a process of quite rapid cultural and organisational
transformation that is exciting and sustainable. The New Generation National
Library Strategy will, we believe, create a workplace that will be perceived
as "a great place to work". We invite you to be a part of that change.

A groundbreaking challenge is to preserve digital objects so that they are
accessible for future generations.  The National Library of New Zealand Te
Puna M&#257;tauranga o Aotearoa, is therefore developing the National Digital
Heritage Archive (NDHA) which is expected to go live in October 2008.   The
NDHA system will form the basis for collecting and preserving digital
objects for future research, study and cultural experience.

We are seeking to create an expert digital preservation team to work
collaboratively, in the first instance, with the NDHA project team tasked
with implementing the NDHA and then to move forward with the establishment
of strong digital preservation strategies and policies as well as routine
preservation operations.  The early induction period is intended to
facilitate an understanding of the Library, the project and new software
before undertaking operational digital preservation activity.
