The National Library of New Zealand wants to find a group of preferred IT professional services suppliers for the Digital New Zealand Wave I Implementation Project. Digital New Zealand is one of two initiatives the National Library is implementing as part of the New Zealand Digital Content Strategy, launched in September 2007. It aims make digital content collections more accessible to New Zealand communities. Digital New Zealand will take place over a number of years, and in 2008 the Wave I implementation project is focused on setting up an operational foundation and the development of exemplars (example solutions) to showcase the value of improved access to, and sharing of New Zealand digital content. The suppliers will provide technology for project areas including the DigitalNZ repository, search engine infrastructure, application programming interface (API), the DigitalNZ website (with developer lab) and showcases (remixing, mashups, tagging and searching). The Request for Proposals (RFP) closes 25 June and the Library plans to select preferred suppliers on 1 July.
