Step 1:

Step 2:

Enter the source's ISBN number in the next field. 

Step 3:

Click Search.

Step 4:

In the search results, select the source you used and click Import Selected Source. Note you have alternative methods of search (title or author/editor), and when there are multiple matches you can limit further using publication date.

Step 5:

Review the imported data and make corrections where needed. NoodleTools makes an intelligent first pass over the data to auto-correct the imported elements based on the citation style you are working with, but you may still need to make further tweaks.
