Māori Bibliography – University of Waikato

A subject index to information on Māori topics appearing in books, conference proceedings and selected periodicals. The bibliography is intended to supplement other sources of information – it does not index material that can easily be found in the University of Waikato Library Online Catalogue (that is, complete books, theses and serials on Māori topics) or in Index New Zealand (INNZ) or Index to New Zealand Periodicals. The bibliography does include publications which contain Māori information that can not quickly be found because the title of the work does not indicate Māori content, or the subject headings used are not detailed enough.
