Database outage - Google Scholar

There is currently a problem with Google Scholar - it is not displaying the link that takes you back to Unitec Library resources.  It is a widespread problem affecting many libraries around the world.  Google will be reharvesting our electronic holdings (so they will know what we have access to again) but this may take up to a week.

Te Wiki o te Reo Māori 2016

Māori Language Week 2016 at Unitec Library

Kia ora! Come celebrate Te Wiki o te Reo Māori with Unitec Library. The theme for this year is “ākina te reo” – behind you all the way which is about using te reo Māori to support people, to inspire and to cheer on. The campaign will run from July 4th to 10th 2016.

Māori Language Week led by the Māori language Commission promotes te reo Māori to all New Zealanders. Following from last year’s theme, the Commission will be promoting 50 key phrases in te reo Māori with the aim to support our athletes at Rio Olympics.

Unitec Library has resources both in print and electronic to help you learn and become familiar in te reo Māori. Check out the Unitec Library catalogue and our Mātauranga Māori – Māori Language & Culture subject guide.
