Remember that DigitalNZ does not have a copy of items in the collection. Instead, we hold metadata about items in other collections, together with a pointer to the content object. DigitalNZ Search therefore behaves much like a search engine. The Metadata Dictionary provides further detail about the common fields used in the Digital New Zealand harvesting system.
