Do NOT cite the Bible as one of your sources in NoodleTools. DO cite it parenthetically in your essay.

Also, do not cite the biblical passages as they appear in EBSCO ebooks.  (See this example of Biblical text appearing in an ebook.) Biblical parentheticals should be book chapter, verse in parentheses cited directly from the Good News Bible Translation on Bible Gateway, Ex.: (Gen. 3:1-2).

Note: In addition to the databases, ebooks, and websites provided, any sources or websites you choose must be of a sufficiently scholarly nature. Do not use short database entries that are only a few sentences long. See Ms. Vanderbauwhede, Ms. Jordan Collins, Mr. Salzman or Ms. Burke if you are uncertain about the quality of a source.)
