NoodleTools

Object Detail

This tool prompts students to enter citation information depending on the type of resource they have to cite. NoodleTools generates an MLA Works Cited list, an APA References list, or a Chicago/Turabian Bibliography that complies with the rules of the current handbooks and manuals for each citation style. Students may also use it to take notes connected to their citations and share bibliographies.

Tips: 

NoodleTools is best used for short undergraduate research papers with fewer than 10 resources. Provides information and guidance for bibliographies and in-text citation help but only formats bibliographies.
