Citation help / NoodleBib – Learn@the Library workshop

In all likelihood sometime during your college career a Works Cited, Bibliography, or References formatted to MLA, Chicago, or APA styles will be required. NoodleBib can help you create these pages, annotations, and the in-text citations used within your research paper.

The library assists you with these tasks with our Cite Your Sources LibGuide and workshops on using NoodleBib. This semester you will have two chances to attend a 30 minute workshop on NoodleBib. The first workshop is Tuesday, January 18 at 11:15 a.m. Your second chance is Wednesday, February 2 at 2:30 p.m.  Take 30 minutes now and save hours of frustration later.

No reservation needed for these workshops.  Simply come to the Rosemary Rogers Research Center which is located on the library’s first floor next to the Reference Desk.
