English abstract

This paper describes how the University of Auckland’s unique and valuable Anthropology Photographic Archive was digitally preserved, gaining a new lease of life after many years of neglect. The joint venture between the Anthropology Department and the University Library has resulted in the creation of a digital image database containing unique photographs of social anthropology and archaeology activities in New Zealand and the Pacific Islands since the 1950’s. The database has great research potential for students and staff at the University and also people worldwide who are able to access and use the resource. A description of how the project was undertaken, the issues involved and the results.
