Ready to Start Citing Sources within your Noodlebib Project Page?

  • Click on "Sources."
  • Begin entering the bibliographic information as listed above.
  • If your source literally does not specify a piece of the information asked for, you must leave it blank. If you are not sure where to find the information, please just ask for help. Your teacher and/or your librarian will be happy to help you check to see if the information can be found!
  • When you have entered all possible information for a source, click "Submit." Noodlebib will not create your citation for that source in the proper format.
  • Keep adding sources under your project page until all of the sources you used are entered.
  • When you are ready, you will be able to export the whole bibliography/works cited page into a Word document, Google Drive document, or a PDF. Noodlebib will list all of your sources in the proper format in alphabetical order.

Ask your teacher or your librarian for help as needed!

Happy Noodlebibbing!
