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.
