  9. Now that you know how to read a database citation, what will you do? • Add each piece of information in the appropriate box in Noodletools. • For each type of source, you select what type of item you are citing: for example, book, reference book, online database, web site, primary source. • Depending on your selection, the Noodletools template will be different. • Important: Read each prompt or question and Noodletools will help you build your citation correctly. • If the citation does not provide the information, leave the box blank.
