Transcript

  • 1. How to Cite a Journal Article from Gale Literature Resource Center in NoodleTools/NoodleBib
    2009-10
    Creekview High School Media Center
    1
  • 2. Begin by looking at the publication information at the beginning of the article. If you see a specific publication date with a month/year or season/year, it is a journal; if you see just a year, it is a reference book in this database. In example, we are working with a journal article.
    2
  • 3. Getting Started in NoodleTools/NoodleBib
    Log into your account
    Open the list you have created for this research project/assignment
    Have your information source available and at your fingertips (in this case, it will be the live version of the article in the GALE LRC database).
    3
  • 4. Starting the Wizard
    Choose “online database” from the dropdown menu; it will be under “electronic resources”
    Press, “create citation”
    Leave the radio button at “yes”
    For this example, select “journal”
    Press “next”
    4
  • 5. “Tell Us More About This Source”
    You will leave the radio button at “journal”
    Make no changes
    Press next
    5
  • 6. Journal Information
    Information about online retrieval of this source: leave at the first choice, “retrieved from an online database”
    Tell Us More About This Source: typically, you will choose the first option that is selected by default, “article”; if you are not 100% sure, ask a librarian or your teacher for assistance.

  • 7. Adding Basic Information
    You will now enter as much publication information as possible
    Fields with an asterisk (*) must be completed
    Rarely will you ever have the information for every information field in NoodleTools/NoodleBib; they try to give you as many options as possible.
    7
  • 8. Author of the Article, Journal Article Title, Journal TitleTitle
    8
    Title of the Article
    Author of the article
    Name of reference journal follows “Source” and is in italicized print
    Hints:
    1. when adding the author’s name to NoodleTools, be sure to hit “add” to make the name stick 2. Double check the MLA capitalization rules for journal article titles; NoodleTools has a helplet for this; you may also ask your librarian or teacher for help.
  • 9. Page, Volume, Issue, Publication Date
    9
    Volume and Issue (volume is 17; issue is 4)
    Page number (do not include “p” or “page)
    Publication date in parentheses
    Hints:
    If the publication date includes a season, NoodleTools provides an option for those in the dropdown menu. 
  • 10. Database Name
    10
    Follows the word “from” and is in italicized print
    Hints:
    As you start to type the database name, NoodleTools will recognize it and autofill it for you once you select it.
  • 11. URL
    Remember to look for the text link that says “bookmark” or “infomark” at the top of the page in GALE databases. Sometimes you will also see link to the bookmark beneath the publication info of the article.
    Open the “bookmark”
    Copy and paste the URL into the URL field in NoodleTools/NoodleBib
    11
  • 12. Final Steps
    Check for MLA style errors. If any items are flagged in red, ask your teacher what he/she prefers you do---sometimes you may need t make MLA style corrections, but at other times, your teacher may tell you to ignore the suggested change.
    Generate the citation
