What is NoodleTools?


NoodleTools is a fill-in-the-blank form to help you create a Works Cited page to accompany your essay, speech or report, and to help you create electronic “note cards” to keep track of details, quotes, paraphrases, etc. as you are researching. 


There are several different citation styles that you can use.  Modern Language Association style (MLA) is used by the English Department on campus.  The American Psychological Association style (APA) is used by several instructors on campus.  Always check your syllabus to see which style is required by your instructor.
