How to Use WorldCat in NoodleTools

If citing a book or other non-periodical source, use WorldCat (a global catalog of library collections) to import the source information directly into the NoodleTools form. Select ISBNTitle or Author/Editor from the Import menu, enter the search term in the next field, then click Search.

Review the imported data and make corrections where needed. NoodleTools makes an intelligent first pass over the data to auto-correct the imported elements based on the citation style you are working with, but you will often still need to make further tweaks.
