Research Commons
The University of Waikato’s digital institutional repository offers free, open access to university digital works. We host research from our academic staff and provide access to the University of Waikato's digital Higher Degree and Masters Degree theses. Also, authors can find out the number of times their research has been viewed or downloaded using Research Commons Usage Statistics.

A database is an organised, searchable collection of electronically stored information. It provides access to anything available in a digital format: articles, ebooks, images, video, audio and grey literature. Results can include just the abstract (summary) of the material; or the complete article, book, video, etc. Explore our Subject-Specific Databases and Database Trials available to students and staff. Also, check out our list of Walk-in Databases available to visitors..
