    So Cited: Parentheticals

    As the Humanities V research paper draws to a close, proofreading is in the air. Consider using Noodlebib as a helpful guide when double-checking those parenthetical citations. How?: When logged in to your Noodlebib account, click on your Humanities V list (what we would refer to as the paper’s bibliography) and find the citation being parenthetically cited.  Follow that citation all the way over to the right-hand side, and click parenthetical reference to reveal Noodlebib’s suggestion. What?: Parenthetically cite when you quote, paraphrase or refer to another person’s idea(s).
