    WORLD BOOK TIPS:

    Don't forget to check the left side column for Encyclopedia Article, Sounds, Videos, SPECIAL REPORTS, and WEBSITES.  These are highly recommended websites, use them!

    Best sources for Images

    All IMAGES used in your brochure must be cited in your Noodletools works cited.  That is why it is easier to use databases for images.  Remember to SAVE images in your U:/ drive, don't just copy paste!  USE THESE SOURCES:
