How I Have Used Purdue OWL…<br />I have used Purdue OWL many times to help me with English assignments and writing assignments in general. I have found it very useful to be able to use one website and find everything I need to know about how to write a better paper. <br />I also get very confused and often forget how to cite sources correctly, so having a website that shows you what a cited resource looks like really helps!<br />
Citation Machine<br />Author <br />+ <br />Title <br />+<br /> Publication Date <br />+ <br />City of Publication <br />+ <br />Publication Company<br />Citation Machine can be used to help you cite a source in either APA or MLA format.<br />This website has spaces for you to fill in with the information needed to create the bibliography entry (i.e. author, date of publication, title, city of publication).<br />Then you push a single button and it does all the work for you and puts the information into a cited reference. <br />+<br />Citation Machine<br />=<br />Completed Citation at the Push of One Button<br />
What Types of Sources You Can Cite Using Citation Machine<br />Book<br />Reference Text<br />Journal/Article<br />Magazine Article<br />Newspaper Article<br />Online Journal/Article<br />Web-Page<br />Online Encyclopedia<br />…And Many More!<br />
My Experience With Citation Machine<br />I have used Citation Machine since elementary school. <br />I find it very useful how the website gives you spaces to fill in with the information needed. This makes it easy to get the information that you need to make a proper citation. It also makes the process go very fast because if you are confused as to which information is which, you can have the spaces to fill in and a completed citation next to each other, which will help you know which information is which.<br />
Noodle Tools<br />Noodle Tools is a website that helps you to be able to take notes better and to cite your sources easily. <br />Within the Noodle Tools website is a tool called Noodle Bib.<br />Noodle Bib is used to help make citations. It gives you a step-by-step run through of how to cite a source correctly. It even asks you specifically what part of a source you are citing so that it makes sure you are using a correct citation for that specific source.<br />
How To Use NoodleBib Express<br />Choose which format you want your citation to be in.<br />Choose the correct source type, if asked to do so.<br />Choose the publication medium, if needed.<br />Choose which part of the source you are using.<br />Enter the information needed.<br />Add annotation if needed.<br />Click generate citation.<br />
How I Have Used Noodle Tools<br />Throughout elementary school, my teachers always had my classes using Noodle Bib to make citations.<br />I find this website very helpful because it narrows down what type of source you are using and even narrows the part of the particular source you are using.<br />I still continue to use this website to help me with citations needed for my classes in college.<br />
