NOODLETOOLS

Noodle what? NoodleTools, formerly known as NoodleBib, is a funny name for a very useful tool - a citation composer. This means it generates citations for you, based on the information you supply, then arranges them all into a correctly formatted reference list. Once you know how to use it, it will save you a lot of time. You can locate it in the Services menu on the library homepage. If you are off campus, you will be prompted to log into the library databases first.

This is the first screen you will see when you click on NoodleTools:

NoodleTools login

The first time you use NoodleTools, you will have to create an account. To do this, click on Register and choose a Personal ID and Password. Leave the subscription type as is and don't worry about the year of graduation. Use the same login each time you sign in to NoodleTools. Your citations will be saved indefinitely, or until you choose to delete them.

Note: Be sure to fill in the "Easy Login Retrieval" information in case you forget your password. You cannot access your saved citations without your login and the library does not have a record of it.
