Māori Subject Headings
Ngā Upoko Tukutuku has been developed as part of the Māori Subject Headings Project jointly sponsored by LIANZA, Te Rōpū Whakahau and the National Library of New Zealand. The purpose is to provide a structured path to subjects that Māori customers can relate to and use to find material in libraries. 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 Māori. It 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.
New terms are developed by Te Whakakaokao (Ngā Upoko Tukutuku Reo Māori Working Group). For more information, please refer to the Te Whakakaokao (Ngā Upoko Tukutuku Reo Māori Working Group): Terms of Reference.
