Increased Online Library Access for a Limited Time
In the current climate of COVID-19, you may find yourself unable to visit the Library. We encourage you to make full use of the Library’s range of online resources including books, journals and databases. Our friendly library staff are here to help with navigating these resources and can be contacted here. We also have several help guides here. To support students during this time, publishers and vendors are offering increased online access for a limited period. Please see our A-Z list of databases for all our available eResources.
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.
Unlimited Access to Owned TitlesDue to COVID-19 and the increased demand for online access to resources, Proquest and EBSCO e-book titles are being offered by the publishers at unlimited access for a limited period. From now until June, this increased support means that multiple people at once can access these books with no turn-aways.
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.
