Find library resources

Kia ora. This guide shows you how to find and organise information for your assignments or research using the Library.


Saving your search results

Find ways to organise information to help your study in the long run. Saving searches is a great example of this. You can keep track of important books or articles you find and easily access them later. Log into Te Waharoa and check your profile to see your saved searches, and the items you have requested or currently have on loan.

  • Sign into Te Waharoa for the best search results, and to save items and searches 
  • When you find an item you want to save, click the pin icon next to the title             
  • To save a search, click the "Save search" pin icon near the top of the screen         


Correctly referencing your sources is an important part of scholarly work. Check with your faculty to find out which referencing style you should use.

Reference management software

Reference management software helps keep track of your citations, and inserting them into your work. It is especially useful at the postgraduate level and above. The Library supports Endnote, Mendeley, Zotero and RefWorks. Check our Referencing and Citing guide for more information or contact your Subject Librarian for help.

Time management

Managing your time effectively is a key part of being successful in academic study and research. The Study smarter page from Student Learning shows how to manage your time, take notes, set up study groups and pass your exams.
