I am looking for papers, books or any other resources which I can use to work in General Relativity with Maple.

I know, there is GRTensor tool, but it is not up-to-date as far as I understand from its website (latest test was on Maple 11). I use Maple 15.

Can you advise me something?

Explore build-in tensor package in Maple.
As far as I know, it allows deal with tensors, their operations, and their use in General Relativity both in the natural basis and in a moving frame.

Also visit Differential Geometry Library. There are hundreds of exact solutions of Einstein's equations with copyable formulas for Maple, Mathematica, MathML and LaTeX.

Finally, atlas for Maple - doing calculations in modern differential geometry and its applications.
There are some examples which may be interested for you:
Kerr black hole
Schwarzschild black hole with cosmological constant
