Who we are


The DigitalNZ team is based in Wellington at the National Library of New Zealand. The good folk below who run this website, and the supporting systems, are part of a larger DigitalNZ Group within the Department of Internal Affairs here in New Zealand.

Current team

In addition to having a love of all things digital, the current team is a fan of sweet treats. Special favourites include chocolate covered pretzels and party mix.
