How to Cite Sources and Create a "Works Cited" or "Bibliography" Page
NoodleTools is Amity’s new subscription citation and note-taking platform, as of September, 2016. Like Easybib, it allows you to create citations, take notes, and link those notes to the specific citation the information comes from in an article, book, or web source. You can then organize your notes, and create an outline to organize your paper. Once you sign up for your own, full-service premium account, you will be able to access your citations and notes from anywhere! Teachers can view this tutorial to learn how it works, and request a librarian lesson to be developed for their students.

How to Use EasyBib (not recommended)
Our new citation platform is NoodleTools, and it is the preferred tool now. EasyBib for schools will be retired on July 15, 2018 and will not be replaced. Until that time, however, Amity students can still use their own accounts on the school version of EasyBib, but formats are limited to MLA, and there is no Notes platform. Follow these instructions to sign up for your EasyBib account.
How to share citations in Easybib
We are now longer using EasyBib as a school, though you can still get to it if you want (see above). When you create a bibliography in Easybib, you can share the whole list, or only specific citations with another Easybib user. You can also import those citations into one of your bibliography lists. Take a look at How to share citations in Easybib.
How to use the Oxford English Dictionary online
Good news, the OED is available through the State Library, but students do need a state card (different from a local library card).
Download the form from the CT page here, which you can fill in electronically, including the parent part, and print it out for signatures. Fill in your driver license number or, if you don't have one, your local library card number right above that. If you are under 18 the parental information is also required.
How to edit videos in YouTube
We have compiled some instructions and a tutorial on compiling and editing videos using YouTube's editor.
