Noodletools is here to help with your next project!

by Veronica Daub

Starting this year, the Rohrbach Library has a subscription to NoodleTools, an extremely noodletoolsuseful tool for faculty and students across all majors. In order to sign up, those interested must click the link for NoodleTools located in the A-Z list of databases. You may click through the link, or find the page underneath ‘find information’ on the library’s website. Clicking through the KU-specific links will verify that the user is going through Kutztown’s subscription; going directly to the website outside of these links will not permit any user registration.

Logging In: Creating an account is the first step to using NoodleTools for your citations, bibliographies, and research. By entering NoodleTools through the KU links, you will be able to authenticate and create your own username and password for the site. After you register, you will use the login you create to re-enter in the future.

Setting up a Project: Once inside, you can begin with your first project. Hitting ‘new project’ brings you to a page with a list of options. The first option is for citation style: MLA, APA, and Chicago/Turabian. Your choice determines which handbook the site will follow when helping with your citations. The second set of choices determine the citation level; there’s starter, (six basic forms, equipped with an introduction to citing sources), junior (a set of simplified forms), and advancednoodletoolssignin (includes 70+ citation forms and comprehensive coverage of the style guidelines). Clicking ‘create new project’ will bring you to the project dashboard.

Research/Writing: At the top of the page, you may compose or edit a research question. Beneath that there is a text box for your thesis, main claim, and hypothesis.

Collaboration: There are options to share the project with a professor for collaboration or review. You can also add students for projects that are a collaborative effort.

Bibliography: The bibliography feature builds your work cited page as you build your project.

Notecards: NoodleTools features a notecard function that allows you to create notecards in the software. The notecard page offers many ways to organize your ideas, as you can see below.
