"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.

Humanities and Social Science Electronic Thesaurus

"The thesaurus was initially based on the UNESCO Thesaurus and is continuously expanded and updated by the UK Data Archive. As new terms appear in our studies, new terms will be found in the thesaurus. HASSET is the basis for the multilingual European Language Social Science Thesaurus (ELSST) which is currently translated into nine languages and is used to aid retrieval in the CESSDA Catalog. HASSET displays the relationships between terms and so can help you broaden your search or make it more specific.
