Learn how to use Noodletools, an online research tool that helps you create, organize, and keep citations and notecards for research projects.
Copy a preformatted citation into your Noodletools with "quick cite"
After choosing the type of citation you are making, click the "Quick Cite" button
On your Gale database article, choose the "cite" button
Choose "MLA" format and export to Noodletools
Make sure you are importing to the correct Noodletools project, then choose "Import Reference"
In this pop up window, the green stripe confirms the citation has been imported to your Noodletools project. Close this tab, go back to your Noodletools project tab, refresh your browser and the citation will populate.
When citing a print book (an actual book that you can hold in your hands), use the shortcut of importing the citation using the book's ISBN (International Standard Book Number). The ISBN is printed above the barcode or on copyright page of the book. If you don't have the book anymore, you can look up the ISBN in the library catalog or Amazon.
