    • NoodleBib Express - Just need one or two quick citations and not an entire source list? NoodleBib Express includes all of the citation forms (MLA and APA) available in the subscription version. The difference? Your citations are not compiled into a source list and cannot be saved -- you'll copy and paste the citation you create into your document.
    • NoodleBib MLA Starter - NoodleBib MLA Starter is designed for students in grades 1-5, introducing our youngest scholars to the basics of citing a source. The tool gives the student clear, color-coded examples of how to cite the sources they are most likely to encounter (printed and online books, reference sources, magazines, newspapers, etc.). Once a 5th grade or ESL student is familiar with the concepts introduced in NoodleBib MLA Starter, the transition to using the advanced versions is simpler. NoodleBib MLA Starter has a limited set of citation types, and does not include the notecards feature.
    • NoodleTools Knowledge Base - We've answered thousands of your questions since NoodleTools was created in 1999. We've sorted through those e-mails and included the ones that we feel would be useful to other users in this knowledge base. Chances are that if you have a question about how to cite a source or use NoodleBib, we've already answered it and you can find it here.
    • NoodleQuest - The Internet is a great place to find information about your research topic, but with hundreds of search engines available, its often difficult to know which one to use! NoodleQuest is a wizard that helps you get started down the right path. Just answer a few questions about your research topic and NoodleQuest will reveal some of the best search strategies you can use, and even explain why! NoodleQuest is an interactive version of Choose the Best Search for Your Information Need.
