Cite your Sources
1st step: SET UP YOUR ACCOUNT
When you set up your account you are creating your personal folder. You can use this account from year to year and use various citation styles.
Register for your account while you are on campus - it will recognize Country Day's IP. Once you've set up your personal credentials you can then work from any location.
→ On the login screen, click Create a Personal ID
→ Fill in the fields on the New User Registration screen
→ Under Choose a Personal ID, type in a personal ID and a password that you will remember. You will need to enter this login information to access your personal folder every time you open NoodleTools. The password is not case-sensitive and must be 4 or more characters long.
→ To save time, click the Check availability button to see whether or not the personal ID you have selected is available. If you have selected a personal ID that is already in use, you can change it now before clicking the Register button.
→ Finally, under Easy Login Retrieval, enter the last four digits of your phone number and your initials. This is used to identify you if you lose your password or if we need it to locate your account. If you are a college student, you may also be prompted to enter your e-mail address here.
→ Click the Register button.
You now have your own Noodle Tools account that you can access from any location.
