Kia ora,
 
*The New Zealand Government Open Access and Licensing Framework - NZGoal
<http://nzgoal.info/>for short.
Guiding government agencies in their release of copyright and non-copyright
material for reuse.
Fostering creative, environmental and economic gain, as well as greater
transparency of government performance.*
 
Being a mature teacher I have have been fortunate to use some wonderful NZ
tax-payer funded teaching resources that in their paper form are becoming
redundant.
Unless they are released with Creative Commons Licences for remixing and
digitising they will probably disappear into obscurity.
 
NZ now has a first point of call for *asking an agency to release material
for re-use in accordance with NZGOAL - Guide for
users<%20http://nzgoal.info/quick-guides/quick-guide-for-users-2/>
