AnyQuestions and UiaNgāPātai
AnyQuestions.co.nz and UiaNgāPātai.co.nz are designed to help you find useful, accurate, online information for your homework. AnyQuestions homework help is delivered in English, while Uia ngā Pātai is for school students who would prefer to chat in te reo Maori with fluent Maori staff.
It’s not a ‘quick answers service’ - instead their group of online librarians are trained to help you work out the sort of information you need, then begin searching with you.
Librarians from all over New Zealand are available each week day between 1pm and 6pm to help you search online. To use AnyQuestions.co.nz or UiaNgāPātai.co.nz you have to be attending a New Zealand primary, intermediate, secondary school or be home schooled.
How it works:
Search for New Zealand content on Digital NZ - there is heaps of exciting stuff, and it is great for research.
Lots of photographs which would be great for New Zealand history assignments.
