NoodleBib is an online tool that helps you collect citation information, keep track of your sources, take online note attached to appropriate sources, and, when you are ready, generate a polished references list or bibliography in APA, MLA, or Chicago/Turabian styles. Keep a separate folder for each project. You must create an individual account (free) to access all features.
Need CSE citations instead? Try SourceAid Citation Builder, then download or email the formatted citations–no online storage of the lists.
