NoodleTools Tips for Citing Books / eBooks and Primary Sources
PLEASE NOTE: Do not copy and paste complete citations from electronic sources. NoodleTools cannot generate footnotes from copied and pasted citations.
To cite a book, first choose the NoodleTools option that best describes where you found it.
Note: Print and electronic books can also be cited in NoodleTools using the ISBN (International Standard Book Number) . For a print book, look for the ISBN and associated barcode on the back cover or on the back side of the title page. If you don't find it, a library staff member can help. Books published before 1967 won't have an ISBN.
If you have any questions, Mr. Padgett or Ms. Taylor are happy to help!
