Research Guides

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 UWM at 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 UWM at Waukesha students and faculty. In the meantime, please see UW-Manitowoc Library's citation guide.

We encourage you to explore the UW Colleges Historic Photos Collection
