Have a long research paper that’s due at the end of the semester? Want to find an easier and less time-consuming way to manage all your sources and cite them? Consider using the Citation tools in Google Docs and Microsoft Word. The Citation tools are a great way to add all your sources and turn them into in-text citations and bibliographies for MLA, APA or Chicago style formats.
Add a Source
Your source has now been added to the Citation Tool and can be used for in-text citations and a bibliography.
Creating In-Text Citations
After adding a source, you can create an in-text citation for it.
Creating a Bibliography
Once you have all your sources for your paper entered in the Citations tool, you can create a bibliography page to reference them all:
If you would like to use the citation tool feature in Microsoft Word, you can refer to these instructions on how to add citations in a Word document using the Word desktop application.
Note that if you’re using a Mac, the instructions will be slightly different based on some variations in the appearance of the ribbon in the Mac version of Word.
With the end of the semester nearing and Fall break being next week, now is the worst time of the year to lose all your hard work from this semester. Make sure you back up your work with these Temple free cloud-based storage options.
