A rich cultural resource lies behind the walls of the National Library and parts of this vast collection can be viewed in one of the regular exhibitions held in the National Library Gallery. Exhibitions the library holds from the heritage collection include books, manuscripts, photographs, drawings, prints, newspapers, maps and excerpts from the oral history tapes, or the music or cartoon archives. The library holds the largest collection of printed Maori material in New Zealand, a family history center for genealogy research and is a major information center for things relating to New Zealand and the Pacific.
