Tēnā tātou katoa



We are pleased to announce that Ngā Upoko Tukutuku, the Maori Subject Headings project has completed another upload of new kaupapa/terms. These terms came from the work of  Te Whakakaokao, the Māori Subject Headings Working Group, at a hui held in December 2015. There are 31 new terms that have been added to Ngā Upoko Tukutuku and are ready for use in library catalogues, and a number of changed terms.



We welcome requests for new terms. Please don’t hesitate to send in requests, queries and suggestions to reo at dia.govt.nz<mailto:reo at dia.govt.nz%3cmailto:reo at dia.govt.nz>  -  Te Whakakaokao would love to hear from you.
