Kia ora koutou,
Although Hocken is closed while Aotearoa manages the Covid-19 crisis, our catalogues and online resources remain available. Our staff will be working from home to respond to enquiries as best they can at a distance so let us know what we can do to help.
Use the staff contact information available on our website and check our Facebook page for updates and news.
For general enquiries firstname.lastname@example.org
Researcher Services email@example.com
Pictorial collection enquiries firstname.lastname@example.org
Archives collection enquiries email@example.com
If you are unable to access Hakena email firstname.lastname@example.org
Requests that require access to our onsite collections or to our equipment are unable to be fulfilled until our premises reopen.
We are unable to accept deposits of either physical or digital material but we welcome enquiries about deposits in the future.
Besides answering your enquiries we will be using this time to work on other tasks that will enhance access to the Hocken Collections in the future, such as transcribing key archival texts and geotagging images on Snapshop.
If you need to get in touch with us please be patient — response times may be a bit longer than usual.
We’d like to say a huge thank you to the University of Otago Information Technology Staff for going way above and beyond to help an entire University move to online delivery of services.
Kia kaha, kia manawanui, kia tūpato, kia atawhai tētahi ki tētahi
Be strong in body and spirit, be careful and be kind to each other.
