Exciting new upgrade to annual reports

Here at Wellington City Libraries we now have subscription access to the New Zealand Stock Exchange’s Annual Reports online.   Access to around 150 listed and 135 delisted NZ companies.  In most cases reports go back a decade or so.   This service can only be used at the library.  Ask at the Science and Humanities desk, 1st floor Central Library.
