Archives NZ want more

Yesterday I had a phone call from Judy at Archives NZ, who administer The Community Archive. She’s been travelling the country talking with community groups about The Community Archive and how to use it. Judy said she’s been using the very small offerings of the Dunedin Student Flat Names Archive in her presentations and would like more images uploaded, as soon as possible.

We’re going to hook up for a coffee next week when she’s in town to talk about how best to use this tool. Thanks for being such an advocate of the project Judy!

Emma Lancaster looks at housing conditions for students in Dunedin


The documentary focuses on housing conditions and health effects of poor housing conditions. Emma also speaks with Sid Brown, Dep Mayor of Dunedin about the tertiary precinct strategy. There’s a short segment on named flats and some great quotes from students about the reasons they choose to live in cold grotty flats.
