Intext Citations

Use your NoodleBib Works Cited to see exactly how to format each parenthetical citation within your text.  

As a general rule the first "element" of your citation goes into the parenthesis.  See the following examples:

1.  Works cited entry: Danhof, Clarence H. Change in Agriculture: The Northern United States, 1820-1870. Cambridge: Harvard UP, 1969. Print

Parenthetical reference: (Danhof 5).

2.  Works cited entry: Morrill Land Grant Act of 1862. Prairie View A&M. 2003. Web. 6 Dec. 2008

Parenthetical reference: (Morrill Land Grant).
