NoodleTools Tips: Reference Sources

To cite an encyclopedia / reference source, choose the option that best describes where you found your source:

  • Database = a Taft Subscription Database such as World History: The Modern Era
  • Website = an encyclopedia found through a search engine such as Google.
  • Print or In Hand = a book found on the shelves of the library's Reference Collection.

Next you will choose the type of source you are citing. In this case, Reference Source.

You will complete both parts of the Reference Source form:

  • information about the article you used.
  • information about the encyclopedia as a whole.

Note: Reference sources can also be cited in NoodleTools using the ISBN (International Standard Book Number) whether found in a database or in print. For print, look for the ISBN and associated barcode on the back cover, usually lower right side. If you don't find it, a library staff member can help.
