Harrowing stories from people who experienced the Canterbury earthquakes and the aftermath are available for the public to view on Canterbury University's earthquake digital archive.

A total of 723 stories were recorded last year in a shipping container converted into a recording studio.

Archive director Paul Millar said many of the stories include horrific details of the earthquakes, but they also show strong feelings of hope for the future.

Mr Millar said 65 of the interviews are now online and he expects all the rest to be there by the end of the year.
