NoodleTools -- Use NoodleTools to create your works cited page (aka "bibliography").  Enter the information about your source and NoodleTools will correctly format it in MLA or Chicago style.  OR, if available, copy and paste the MLA citation from the online database source directly into NoodleTools.

TO GET STARTED

From your school gmail account, click the "waffle" grid in the upper right corner for Google Apps.  Go to "more" to find the special "Noodletools" icon.  This will get you in automatically once you create a Noodletools account.

  • The first time you use NoodleTools you will have to create a new account by doing the following:
    • Click “Create a Personal I.D.”  then choose "An account linked to a school/library subscription."
    • Enter a Personal I.D. (of your choosing) and Personal Password then click "create."
    • Choose the school location (Bentley School Lafayette campus)
    • Enter your initials and the last 4 digits of your phone number

HOW TO CREATE CITATIONS AND A WORKS CITED
