Academic sources are found in library databases
- Databases are "one-stop shops". They contain reliable, scholarly, up-to-date and valid sources (books, magazines, journals, newspapers, videos, audio, and more). They also provide links to verified web sites.
- While coverage of topics in databases will vary, you can employ the same searching techniques and find the same tools (downloading, saving, sharing, citing, listening, etc.) in all library databases.
- Preformatted citations are included for every article. This means you can copy and paste the citation directly into Noodletools (directions below).

Citing sources found in databases:
Databases: You can copy and paste pre-formatted citations from databases.
- To do so, locate the source citation, found either at the top or bottom of the article. Copy it. Select "Database" and click "Create citation". Scroll down and click the type of source you located in the database (book, reference source, magazine, etc.). Click "Copy and paste citation" and paste the citation into the box marked with an asterisk. Verify accuracy and click "Submit".
Books: You can import citation information using the book's ISBN # or title/author. This also holds true for e-books.
- To do so, locate the ISBN # on the back cover or title page of the book. For e-books, look in a section often called "About the book". Can't find it? You can change the import option to title/author. Enter the information into the field at the top of the book citation screen in Noodletools and click "Import".
