GOALS & PROJECTS

Digitisation of The Collections

Research Library Cataloguing Project

After recently receiving a large donation of books we are working to integrate, catalogue and make available online our collection of reference books, fiction, journals and essays and research documents.

The Oral HERSTORY Project

An exciting project capturing the adventures, stories and relationships of lesbian sapphic women and their lives in our diverse communities.

Ara Design Project

This year we are involved in a design project with Ara Institute of Canterbury. Senior design students will be working with the museum to create new ideas for our overall aesthetic, including the website design, social media channels and publishing style.

Preserving Our Recorded Collections

The museums is digitising our important historical content that is currently saved on 'vintage' formats.

Museums and Cultural Heritage

Since last year we have been involved in a student internship programme with the University of Auckland. Students doing post-grad study in Museums and Cultural Heritage have been helping us with our work while gaining some hands practical experience.
