The archive is easy to use and navigate and is shaped by its contributors. People are free to view an array of story-telling materials in the form of photography, video, audio and written works.
The Canterbury Earthquake Recovery Learning collection includes documents from a wide range of Government and non-government organisations such as The Ministry for Women, the Red Cross, the Earthquake Commission, and the Human Rights Commission, as well as academic reports on how to respond to an emergency. There are also copies of key Canterbury Earthquake Recovery Authority (CERA) documents. This adds to the more than 150,000 items already stored in UC QuakeStudies.
