Create Citations using NoodleTools
Locating Information for your Citation
Print Sources and e-books in PDF: Use the title page and verso (copyright page that backs up to the title pate) for the most authoratative information.
Online Research Databases: Look for citation informnation provided by the database (a citation listing, a sample citation, etc.) IMPORTANT: The citation format provided by most databases is unreliable so only use these citations as a source of information to put into NoodleTools.
Websites/Pages: Be sure to cite the actual web page you are using, not the web site home page! Look for information about your web page on the actual page. You may have to look at information provided on other pages from the web site (About Us, Mission Statement, Resources, etc.) to get complete information for your citation.
Periodical articles on the Web: Look for information on the page containing the article. You may have to look at information on other pages in the website to get complete information for your citation.
Creating Citations using NoodleTools
Use NoodleTools to correctly cite sources:
Choose the Style to use, APA or MLA.
1. Choose the citation type that best respresents your source - e.g., don't choose the citation type "web site" just because you have located the information on a website.
a. Citation types depend on the actual format of information you are using, (article, blog, video clip, podcast, interview, etc.) For example, for an online news article, use Newspaper/Newswire type.
b. If you are unsure, take time to view the slideshow associated with the source type.
2. Follow the steps listed in NoodleTools. Enter in all of the available information for your source. Please note that your source may not provide all of the information requested.
3. Double check to make sure your spelling is accurate. NoodleTools will NOT spell-check for you.
4. After you are finished with the citations, select the boxes to the left of the citations that you want to print then select Print/Export to Word. Make sure to put your name, hour, date and Teacher's name in the header. Print your list of citations.
