Canterbury Stories consists of digitised material from Christchurch City Libraries archives, publications, newspapers, and donors. It includes digitised physical collections as well as born digital material.

Material is arranged into collections relating to the archive, the donor or the type of material. You can browse the collections below or search on any term in the search box above. You can also explore our collections thematically through the curated Sets page.

Currently as well as adding new material we are migrating material from our legacy collections.
