Digitisation of the Cromwell Argus

We’re supporting the effort to preserve, digitise and make available early Otago publications. Our first project was to work with Central Lakes Trust and the National Library of New Zealand on early Central Otago newspapers. The Friends’ Committee, with the assistance of Hocken Collections staff, identified the Cromwell Argus as most in need of its support and we committed $10,000 towards that end.

The Cromwell Argus is now available on the National Library’s Papers Past site, from its inception to 1948, under the National Library’s collaborative digitisation programme.
