Matapihi

Matapihi is the first National Digital Forum collaborative project. 

 

Matapihi will be a window onto the heritage collections of New Zealand's archives, galleries, libraries and museums. It will provide a single point of access for approximately 60,000 selected images, sounds and objects. It is similar in concept to PictureAustralia and Images Canada.
