New Zealand Card Index

The librarians at the Auckland Research Centre told me about this a few weeks ago -- over the weekend, I did some digging at the Auckland Library website and found it: the New Zealand Card Index. There are transcription errors (there's a great "report errors" feature, though) but I think so far that this is a cracker of an online resource into our history. Another link for the list.

An Update (27 February): The Index was officially launched last Wednesday, 24 February. Unfortunately, though, it's best seen using Internet Explorer. The images of the cards themselves don't appear in Firefox (sad, because that's my browser of choice). Good thing that Firefox has a "View in IE" add-on, though.

Further update (2 March): The Council's IT expert has been onto it, and the link altered to allow better access using Firefox. Links updated here.
