Recollect sites launch to the public: NZEI Heritage and Our Boys, Your Stories.

NZEI Heritage and Our Boys Our Stories screenshotsOur Boys Your Stories (left) is Auckland Library's site to "Discover the impact of the First World War on Aotearoa New Zealand through stories about our people and places". Our Boys Your Stories launched on Saturday 27 September as part of the Auckland Heritage Festival.

The following day (28 September), NZEI Te Riu Roa launched NZEI Heritage (right) at their Annual Conference. NZEI Heritage invites members and researchers to both contribute to and "explore our rich collection of resources about the New Zealand Educational Institute Te Riu Roa, and the history of education in Aotearoa New Zealand".

Both sites invite user contributions to enrich the formal metadata. These contributions can include 'tagging' people in photos, pinning locations on to maps, and adding stories - either their own experiences or family memories.

Well done to both NZEI and Auckland Libraries for providing these fantastic resources for researchers, genealogists, social historians and interested visitors like you and I.
