Most books can be borrowed from the Ngā Pounamu Māori collection, but to ensure there will always be a copy to view, the Aotearoa New Zealand Centre copy is for reference only.( The Aotearoa New Zealand copies are currently unavailable).
Many iwi whakapapa are treated as taonga and shelved separately.
Your library card or other current ID is required to use these.
