NoodleTools Guide: Password & Personal ID

Learn how to create an account and then use NoodleTools to create citations, Works Cited page, and annotated bibliographies.

   The Personal ID and email address used when you registered are essential. This information is necessary for recovering your password and access to your account.

Login: Personal ID and account profile

You select the Personal ID that is your login username when you register for a NoodleTools account under the Vol State subscription. The Personal ID has to be unique to the Vol State subscription; so, your Vol State username is a good option.

The initials and last 4 digits of a phone number are used to verify your account if you forget your Personal ID or email used with your account.

It is important to create a "real" account in NoodleTools to avoid getting locked out and losing your work. Check your profile to confirm the information. REMEMBER your Personal ID.

Forgot your password?

NoodleTools will send a password reset link to the email address in your NoodleTools account. Check your Spam/Junk Mail folder if the message does not show up in your Inbox.

When you select the "I forgot my password" link from the Sign In page you are taken to the "Retrieve Password" page.
