SHB NoodleTools: Creating a Bibliography in NoodleTools

Why Do I Need NoodleTools?

College research papers must be supported by information sources, such as books, journal articles, websites and other types of information.  It is very important that these sources are cited correctly for several reasons: 

  • If you fail to cite the sources you used, it is considered plagiarism: that "p" word which, when detected, can cause all kinds of trouble for you, the author; 
  • Your professors are sticklers for citations:  they want them and they want them in the correct citation style;
  • Citations are a roadmap for others to locate additional information about your topic.

NoodleTools makes the job of citation easier, by telling you the information you need according to the source your are using and then generating the bibliography in correct citation style. 

What Citation Style Should I Use?

Short Answer:  Ask your Professor!
