Online Citation Tools

  • As a CCSF student, you have free access to NoodleTools. After creating an account, the full version allows you to not only generate citations-- but also to store them online in working bibliographies, and to collaborate with your teachers and peers. Be sure to double-check your capitalization and punctuation. 
  • Are you trying to cite articles from CCSF's online databases? There is a shortcut! When you are in the database and have found the record for an article that you want to use, click the "cite" icon in the column on the right side of the page. Select your desired citation format, and the citation will be automatically generated for you. Just be sure to double-check the capitalization and punctuation because computer-generated citations aren't always perfect.
