Useful Research Tools

These are some of the most important etools which can help you to do your class projects:


APA (American Psychological Association) and Harvard Referencing Styles are the two most used in the Education Faculty.

The UWC Library has compiled the Referencing Styles Guide @ UWC to help you with referencing.

SAGE Research Methods Online

SRMO will help you with your research project by showing and explaining easy to understand research methodology with examples.

Contact the Education Librarian to get you started on using SRMO.

You can also watch a short video on SRMO overview.

Mendeley Reference Management

Manage your references by citing and building bibliographies at the click of a mouse by using Mendeley.

The Education Librarian can take you through how to get up and running with Mendeley.

Watch this full tutorial video on how to get started with Mendeley.

Google Scholar

Discover Education information sources worldwide by using Google Scholar.

Before you do a search, always link Google Scholar to UWC Library collections by clicking on the Google Scholar link, just below the uKwazi search space. The results will then include UWC holdings.  Scholar is useful for metrics and how to find similar papers.

Ask the Education Librarian to take you through useful features of Scholar.
