Using Microsoft Word to Manage your References

on October 11, 2011

USING MICROSOFT WORD TO MANAGE SOURCES, ADD CITATIONS & CREATE BIBLIOGRAPHY.

Microsoft Office has the capacity to manage your referencing for your academic work.You will need to enter your source and then as you type, you can place details of the source next to each citation. At the end of the essay, you can then create a bibliography.Below is a link to a handout in Word format, which explains how you can do this.

You will also need to follow instructions on this website which will show how you can make sure that ‘Harvard’ is included as a ‘style’ in the list of styles from which you can choose. It also shows how your sources can be exported from one computer to another. A tiny bit technical, but the instructions are quite good.
