New Zealand Standard Classification of Non–Profit Organisations

"The New Zealand Standard Classification of Non–Profit Organisations (NZSCNPO) has been developed to assist in the study of the non–profit sector in the New Zealand context. Designed to meet the requirements of the satellite account for non–profit institutions (NPISA), the classification may be applied by various organisations throughout New Zealand to encourage standardisation and data comparability. The classification is based on the International Classification of Non Profit Organisations (ICNPO) to ensure international comparability of data on non–profit organisations.

International Classification for Seasonal Snow on the Ground

"Since 1990 our collective knowledge of snow and the techniques we use to observe its characteristics have evolved. Thus, in 2003, the current classification (Colbeck et al., 1990) needed an update, but the users of the 1990 classification felt that corrections and additions should be kept to a minimum. Following the spirit of the previous editions, the Working Group on Snow Classification took care to again provide a concise document usable by user groups of quite different specialties: snow scientists, practitioners, scientists from other fields, as well as interested lay persons.

Nga Upoko Tukutuku

"The list of over 1,000 headings and their associated references is appropriate for use at a public library level. The purpose is to provide a structured path to subjects that Maori customers can relate to and use to find material in libraries. It is not intended to be used as a dictionary. It has been developed so that cataloguers and descriptive archivists have a reliable and comprehensive resource to use when describing material either in or about Maori. It will be used by the National Library of New Zealand to enhance its service to Maori library users.

Iwi-Hapū Names List

"It is derived from the waka, iwi and hapū names in He Puna Kupu Māori and Tāpuhi and has been reviewed by Te Taura Whiri (Māori Language Commission). This list has been developed for the wider library and archives communities and will be used by the National Library of New Zealand to enhance its service to Māori library users. However it should not be seen as authoritative beyond its intended purpose for use in libraries and archives."

Index New Zealand Thesaurus

"Until September 2007 subject terms used in Index New Zealand were from the Index New Zealand Thesaurus, which is based on the APAIS thesaurus, created by the National Library of Australia. This version was released in November 2005 and contains over 1,200 preferred terms. The Index New Zealand Thesaurus has been designed to describe journal and newspaper articles about New Zealand and the South Pacific in the areas of social sciences and humanities."
