    • Ease of use encourages student buy-in
    “ NoodleTools stands out because instead of simply presenting an ambiguous form that a user may not correctly complete, it attempts to teach at almost every step. …if a user chooses to cite a journal article, the software will provide a definition of a journal. This not only checks the user's choice, but reminds the user of the essence of the publication type selected. NoodleBib Express continues to engage the user by asking if the journal was online or in print, from a Web site, or a database and will even coach the students on those "picky details" such as capitalization. The user not only gets an accurate citation, but has quite possibly learned something about sources and documentation.” -- Tomaiuolo, N. (2007, July/August). Citations and aberations. Searcher, 15 (7), 22.
