How to Cite Sources

Reference Managers

Use a Reference Manager to keep track of all the reference you use for writing papers.  A reference manager will also format your paper and bibliography in the style of your choice.

**CAUTION: Professors have reported that NoodleBib's APA style citations are not always accurate. When using any citation builder (including NoodleBib/NoodleTools), you should double-check the results against the appropriate style guide or manual. No automated system is perfect, so always carefully examine the citations that are produced before inserting them into a "Works Cited" or "References" page.
