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."
