    • I know this can be confusing! I am going to choose journal because I am citing a source I read in a library database, Opposing Viewpoints, and it was a journal article.
    • I am going to fill in each area that I can. Sometimes when you choose to cite it can be difficult to find the correct information OR it is simply not there. If you cannot find the information leave that area blank.
    • I input all of the information I had on my source. The result is the citation above. Now how do you get it on your bibliography page for your instructor?
  11. Choose the print export icon. We are going to export it to a Word document.

Isn’t this amazing? Your citation is in a Word document ready for your instructor with perfect spacing! Also, this citation is saved in your account within NoodleTools, so you can keep adding to your bibliography.
