The New Zealand Electronic Text Centre (NZETC) (Māori: Te Pūhikotuhi o Aotearoa) was renamed in 2012 the New Zealand Electronic Text Collection due to internal restructuring.

The New Zealand Electronic Text Collection is a collection of the library at the Victoria University of Wellington which provides a free online archive of New Zealand and Pacific Islands texts and heritage materials. The Library has an ongoing programme of digitisation and feature additions to the current holdings within the NZETC. In the beginning of 2012 the collection contained over 1,600 texts (around 65,000 pages) and received over 10,000 visits each day.[2]
