How To Use NoodleTools

Any HeinOnline user can find sources in the Law Journal Library and then seamlessly organize that material in NoodleTools. Simply use the new “Export to NoodleTools” feature incorporated into our existing citation tool.

To begin, create or open an existing project in NoodleTools. In a separate browser tab, log into HeinOnline’s Law Journal Library to begin your research. Once you’ve found the perfect source, use the built-in Cite button from within the document in question.

Select this link for a chance to review the citation before importing. After review, choose the appropriate project from the drop-down and click the Import References button.

If you find any issues within the given citation, there is a space within this interface to send feedback to HeinOnline before importing your reference.

Note: The citation style imported will automatically be based on the style chosen upon creation of the NoodleTools project.
