Back copies of the newspaper
Many stories from the Herald print edition since late 1998 are available among the stories on this website.
Use the Search function to search all of the news archives. This is
located in the top right hand corner of any site page. The headlines
and/or story text will not necessarily be exactly the same as in the
print edition, however. When your search returns some search results,
scroll down the bottom to find an advanced search option where you can
search for an exact phase.
Public Libraries: The past six months of the Herald print edition are held in paper form at the Auckland City Public Library. Previous editions (back to November 1863) are available on microfilm, at the Central Library, 44 Lorne Street, Auckland.
To use the Library's research centre: The centre is open from 9 am to 8 pm Monday to Friday, and 10 am to 4 pm Saturday to Sunday. The service to access back copies of the New Zealand Herald is free.

Content: Why some newspaper stories are not also on our site
We try to publish as much of the newspaper on the site as we can. But sometimes we do not have the rights to a story. For instance, it could be a wire agency story, which forbids online publication.
All stories are displayed within one or several news sections on the site relevant to the story subject. The top current stories from these sections are also displayed on the site home page. Some of material that is not available includes:
- Any articles to which we do not have the electronic publishing rights
- Letters to the Editor
- Some special edition supplements and special reports
- Some photographs
- Some tables, charts and information graphics
- Newspaper Crosswords
You must not reproduce any part of our staff writers' materials on your website without seeking permission. We do not own copyright to work by certain freelance writers and news wire services. We have a flexible package that allows our partners to place certain content on their site. Pricing is dependent on the amount and type of content required. Please send your request to the editor

We welcome your news tips or photos of a news event. Send them here or ring Newstips on 0800 HERALD (0800 437-253)
