  • Hard News: Introducing: The New Zealand…, in reply to Robyn Gallagher,

    NZ On Screen does some immensely useful work on what I've been told, and can well believe, is a tiny budget. I still have difficulty though with the problem of some contextual material being cobbled together from uncredited print sources. It goes against the grain of the organisation's own Creative Commons licence specifying attribution. I realise that this a consequence of informed and hard working people being overstretched, but it makes it difficult to recommend at least some of the text entries as credible information sources to writers and researchers. I'm not sure what proportion of MCH funding sustains DNZB entries, but if NZ On Screen contextual material could be similarly funded perhaps this might solve such issues.
