LAGANZ material safe behind earthquake barriers

Sat 19 Nov 2016 In: New Zealand Daily News View at Wayback

No fears are held for the safety of the nation's central archive of glbti historical documents now isolated behind barrier tape in Wellington as access to and around the National Library building remains restricted following last weekend's earthquakes and after-shocks. The National Library building, at right. "The restricted access is a precautionary measure," says Lesbian and Gay Archives of NZ trustee Kevin Haunui, "to enable checks to the building's structure to be made." He says another reason for the building being currently closed is possible issues with surrounding buildings. "The LAGANZ material is safe and as there are generally only a small number of researchers accessing the material at any one time we hope not too many people are being inconvenienced."
