NoodleBib is an online tool that prompts you for information about your source (title, author, etc.), then generates a citation in the style you specify (MLA, APA, or Chicago).

Osterlin Library has created three video tutorials that will get you started using NoodleBib: "Getting to NoodleBib," "Creating Citations with NoodleBib," and "Printing and Saving Citations in NoodleBib."
