See tips here for evaluating websites for school work. Do not use websites that do not pass the evaluation criteria! Be very careful when you cite websites in NoodleTools. You will most likely need to create the citation manually by completing the NoodleTools form, since most websites do not have pre-formatted citations for you to copy or export to NoodleTools. In NoodleTools, select Website for your new source, and most of the time you will select webpage from the list (i.e., most of the time you are simply citing a particular page on a website). There is a video on How to cite a website on the library's Cite Your Sources page.
