New resource for citations!

The Library has subscribed to NoodleTools, an online citation software designed to help you cite information sources and avoid unintentional plagiarism. NoodleTools not only makes creating citations easier…it also has tools that help create outlines and notes to make all your research projects easier to manage.

The library purchased a license to make NoodleTools accounts available for all Bates students, faculty and staff.  Find links to NoodleTools on the library’s Citations Subject Guide or the All E-Resources and Databases Guide where it’s listed with all subscription resources available from Bates Library.  For off-campus access, use the same username and password that is used for your Bates email when prompted.
