A nifty tool that helps you keep track of the sources you use for research. Create and manage bibliographies, share them with teachers, save them in Word format, e-mail them as desired. When you get to the site, choose "NoodleBib" and then "sign in" New users will then select "create a Personal ID" and those already registered can simply sign in.
