Student Collaboration

NoodleBib includes a feature where you can work together with other students.  Students on your team can add or make chages to citations and notecards in your collaborative project.  A status box appears when another student on your team is working on your team project.  Fortunately, NoodbleBib automatically syncs the changes being made, so you are always viewing the most recent version of your project.

What do I do when I see "Revalidate Personal Folder?"

Every August 1st, NoodleTools resets all accounts.  If you are a student at PC, you'll want to first log in through our EZProxy server.  Then, when you log into NoodleTools, your account will be automatically revalidated.   Please use this link:
