Noodle Tools guides you through the process of creating citations.  In your account you have the ability to create citations from any type of source (audio, video, journals, websites, books, images, and more!) and to store them in different folders ("projects") which you can label by assignment, class, etc. to keep your citations organized.  Noodle tools also gives you the ability to create annotated citations and can generate in-text citations for you.
