NoodleBib: A New Type of School Supply

Do you remember going to back-to-school supply shopping as a kid? Back then, you may have purchased a Barbie folder or a GI Joe notebook to go along with your pencils, markers, and other supplies. But now as a college student, the times and tools have changed; no matter what age you are, you will still need the proper school supplies to be prepared for classes.

One tool that Rasmussen College encourages its students to use is called NoodleBib. Read on to find out what it is, why you need it, and how to use it in your college writing assignments.

What is Noodlebib?

NoodleBib is a documentation program that helps students organize, format, and build the bibliography citations for research papers that are written in the APA or MLA styles. If you are unfamiliar with the different writing style formats, check out our citation style resources.

Why students use it?

As a college student you will be given many different writing assignments throughout your coursework. By using NoodleBib, you can track your sources and generate citations into the correct format for your research paper. It is critical that each resource be formatted properly. Documenting your resources incorrectly is a common mistake that students may lose points on assignments. It is also important to use citations to give credit to the original sources to avoid any plagiarism issues.

What information will I need to fill out a citation?

In order to complete your citation, you will need several pieces of information from the resource. This may include:

  • The type of source (newspaper, book, website, etc)
  • Document title
  • Author
  • Publication date
  • And more depending on the resource being used

With NoodleBib, you just input the information being asked and it will format each resource for you so you can place it onto your works cited or references page. 

Using NoodleBib will prove to be an extremely useful tool while you’re earning your degree. Get familiar with it right away – you will be happy that you did.
