HOW TO DO CITATIONS, BIBLIOGRAPHIES AND CROSS REFERENCES IN MICROSOFT WORD 2010 – PART 1

Microsoft Word 2010

This article will guide through the process of doing citations, bibliographies and cross references in Microsoft Word 2010. For better understanding this article is divided in two parts.

Many paper documents require some sort of bibliography or citation to mark your sources. This can be done very easily on the references tab. We have a citations and bibliography group in the middle of the tab than a scroll down here to a place I would like to insert a citation. I have a quote here. This quote has not been sighted. Now I’m going to the Insert Citation button and I have a source already listed so I could simply click on it and it as the source.

That’s easy if your sources were already in here. If they aren’t then you have a couple of options. I’m going to go ahead and undo that, come back here and chose a new source.

Here what I would do is put it. Put your name and say that you wrote a book. Once you put all the elements in, you can click ok.

If you want to see all the bibliography fields, you you click that and there are other things you could include. In this case it probably has everything I can put additional information here if needed. I’m going to go ahead and click ok.

Notice that because I created this item as I was inserting a citation, it put it in and it created as a source.

Another option is that you may not want to put the source in right now, you may not have the full information and you want to come back to it later. Click where you would like to put the citation, come up to insert citation and add a placeholder.

This is for any sources that are not yet listed in your manage sources. Then later on I can come in here hit the drop down arrow and chose edit citation,

which will give me the ability to put pages suppressed different fields.
