Making the Most of NoodleTools Features
Manage your work
When you are ready to begin research, create a NoodleTools project. Add collaborators if you’re working with a group. Share your project with your teacher’s assignment inbox to allow them to view and give feedback on your source citations, notecards, outline, and file attachments.
Cite your sources
Generate accurate MLA, APA, or Chicago-style citations and format your in-text citations or footnotes. Use an ISBN number or DOI to import citation information for books, articles, and reports, or take advantage of our “Export to NoodleTools” database integrations to produce citations from their article metadata.
Take notes and develop ideas
Make connections, develop original ideas and articulate arguments. Use our intuitive, visual “tabletop” to manipulate, tag and pile notecards, then connect them to topics in your outline to prepare for writing.
