How To Cite a Reference Source from the GALE Literature Resource Center Database in NoodleTools, 2009-10

  1. 1. How to Cite a Reference Book from Gale Literature Resource Center in NoodleTools/NoodleBib<br />2009-10<br />Creekview High School Media Center<br />1<br />
  2. 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 reference book.<br />2<br />
  3. 3. Getting Started in NoodleTools/NoodleBib<br />Log into your account<br />Open the list you have created for this research project/assignment<br />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).<br />3<br />
  4. 4. Starting the Wizard<br />Choose “online database” from the dropdown menu; it will be under “electronic resources”<br />Press, “create citation”<br />Leave the radio button at “yes”<br />For this example, select “reference source”<br />Press “next”<br />4<br />
  5. 5. “Tell Us More About This Source”<br />You will leave the radio button at “encyclopedia” or “biographical dictionary” for all reference sources in the GALE LRC database.<br />Leave the radio button at an “encyclopedia article or entry”<br />For “Is the online material duplicated from a printed work?”, you normally will select “yes.”<br />Select “next”<br />5<br />
  6. 6. Adding Basic Information<br />You will now enter as much publication information as possible <br />Fields with an asterisk (*) must be completed<br />Rarely will you ever have the information for every information field in NoodleTools/NoodleBib; they try to give you as many options as possible.<br />6<br />
  7. 7. Author of the Article, Article Title, Reference Book Title<br />In this example, Specifying: Black Women Writing the American Experience is the title of the reference book. Be sure to hit “add” to make the name “stick”.<br />7<br />Title of the Article<br />Author of the article<br />Name of reference book follows “Publication Details”<br />
  8. 8. Page Numbers, Editor, Volume<br />If a name has an initial, be sure to put a period after it when entering in NoodleTools; be sure to hit “add” to make the name “stick”.<br />8<br />Reference book volume<br />Editor of the reference book<br />Page numbers<br />
  9. 9. Reference Book Publication City, Book Publisher, Book Publication Date<br />If a name has an initial, be sure to put a period after it when entering in NoodleTools; be sure to hit “add” to make the name “stick”.<br />9<br />Publication city<br />publisher<br />Publication year<br />
  10. 10. Name of Database<br />Name of database<br />The database name is in italic print. As you start to type it into NoodleTools/NoodleBib, it will pick up the name and autocomplete for you.<br />10<br />
  11. 11. URL<br />Remember to look for the text link that says “bookmark” or “infomark” at the top of the page in GALE databases<br />Open the “bookmark”<br />Copy and paste the URL into the URL field in NoodleTools/NoodleBib<br />11<br />
  12. 12. Final Steps<br />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.<br />Generate the citation<br />12<br />
