Wintec Library is here to help you while you study
Whether you're finding material for your assignments, need APA Referencing help from our expert Librarians, or want a quiet place to study, come and see us!
Library GuidesLibrary guides are guides especially written by Wintec Library staff to support you with your studies. They help you find books, journals and databases to use for your assignments and can give you tips, tools and strategies for assessing the resources you find. Type in keywords or your subject name to find specific guides.
A database allows you to search for material in journals, magazines, ebooks and other online resources. Results can include just the abstract (summary) of the material; or the complete article, book, video, etc. Click a recommended database below to start searching.
Wintec Library has a large number of digital resources, from our single-search system OneSearch to our hundreds of thousands of online ebooks and millions of academic journal articles. We know it can be tricky using so many different systems, so we have some tips and pointers here to help you make the most of the resources we have while you study.
Whether you need help learning how to use OneSearch, you want to brush up on your ebook skills, or you're wanting to know if Wikipedia can be used in an assignment, we're here to help. Click this link for more information.
Library News & Events
Library will close
The library will close at the earlier time of 3.45 pm on Wednesday 18th December.
We will re-open on Thursday 19th December at 8 am. You can still access all our online resources. We apologise for any inconvenience.
Things have changed!
We are now live with our new Library system, Koha. We think Koha will make it easier for you to see available items. Notice the slider showing some of our recent purchases you can borrow.
Exciting new features include the ability to make your own lists of resources you like – both electronic and print! You can find the lists at the top right-hand side of the screen. Other new features are the star ratings you can place on books you like, and the option to suggest new books for purchase.
We are very excited about Koha and hope you will be too. Contact us with your feedback, and if you would like more help navigating around the site.
To access the databases you will need a Wintec computer username and password. These are available from the ITS Service Management Team toll-free on 0800 587 500 for all current Wintec staff and students.
If you need help searching the databases look for tutorials within the database, or Ask a librarian - we're here to help.
