The Library has developed several Research Guides to help users find high-quality research materials in a variety of subject areas. These guides incorporate library materials (articles, books, media materials) along with freely-accessible information found out on the Internet. Our most recent research guide is for students in the Paving the Path to College (Project Odyssey).
Student Research Symposium
Learn more about the UW-Waukesha Student Research Symposium, which provides students the unique opportunity to conduct original research and to distinguish themselves in their chosen field of study.
Citation Resources - NoodleTools
Whether you're using MLA, APA, Chicago, or CSE, creating a quality works cited page can be a challenge. NoodleTools is student-friendly software that assists students and faculty citing dozens of different kinds of citations including websites, textbooks, articles from library databases, interviews, and more. The Library is working with the Academic Success Cetner to develop a new citation guide for UW-Waukesha students and faculty. In the meantime, please see UW-Manitowoc Library's citation guide.
Campus Research Resources
There are several local sources available to those interested in researching the history of the UW-Waukesha campus. Among these is a collection of nearly 600 digitized images of campus life since the inaugural fall 1966 semester, which was held at the former Mount St. Paul campus in Waukesha, to present day. We encourage you to explore the UW Colleges Historic Photos Collection.
Books: 64,000+ volumes
Videos (DVDs and VHS cassettes): 3,000+ titles
Music: 600+ CDs; 2000+ LP records

Off-Campus Access to Library Materials
UW-Waukesha-affiliated users can assess library materials from anywhere off-campus, however, they must authenticate themselves using the UW Colleges Proxy Server and their Prism/Network ID and password.
If you have any problems accessing or using library materials from off-campus, please contact us.
