    HOW TO LOG IN TO NOODLETOOLS VIA OFFICE 365

    BEGINNING jANUARY 28TH, THE LOGIN PROCESS WILL CHANGE, REQUIRING USERS TO LOG IN VIA OFFICE 365

     
     
    Every CBSD student has free access to NoodleTools.  Use it to create citations, take notes, and more.
     
     
    To create a free account, go to NoodleTools from a school computer.  After the account is created it may be accessed from home.
     
     
    Are you being asked for a school username and password to revalidate your account while logging in at home? If so, do one of these:
    • Enter the username and password from the database password sheet, which is available at the library desk or online (requires your school network username and password)
    • Log in to NoodleTools on a school computer (automatically revalidates account)
    • If you try to revalidate and a "create new user" screen appears instead, you probably need to change the account location from middle school to East:
      • Skip the revalidation
      • Click "My Account" after you have logged in
      • In the School/Location drop-down menu, select Central Bucks East High School
      • Click Save Profile
      • The next time you are asked to revalidate your account there should not be a problem
     
     
    Hints on Citing Sources in NoodleTools
     
    Start with the Correct Source Location
     
    • NoodleTools will ask for the location of your source (Where is it?) and the type of source (What is it?)
    • If you found the source in a database
      • begin with location = Database, then source type = Reference Source, or Original Content in Database*, or Journal, or Pamphlet/Brochure, etc.
    • If the source is a page on a website
      • begin with location = Website, then source type = Web Page
    *When to choose source type = Original Content in Database.  This is for articles that don't come from journals, books, or other sources outside the database.  They are written just for the database:
    • Most, but not all, articles in the ABC-CLIO, CountryReports, and World Book databases are original content, published by the database.
    • In the Opposing Viewpoints database, an article from Opposing Viewpoints Online Collection should be cited as original content as well.
     
     Viewpoint articles in Opposing Viewpoints database can be tricky to cite!
