North and Westward: tracking down copies of newspaper articles found on Local History Online

The Auckland Libraries’ heritage website Local History Online includes an index to community newspapers from the North Shore, West Auckland and Rodney regions published over the last 5-15 years (depending on the newspaper).  You can access this through the Digital Library on our homepage.

From the Local History Online homepage, you can click on a heading to restrict your search to a particular region or format (for example, Rodney Newspaper Index or West Auckland Newspaper Index), or use the Search All option to search across all regions and formats.

We can help you to get in touch with the newspaper publisher to get copyright permission if you are planning to reproduce the article in a commercial publication or on a website.
