Citations and MS Word

Logo for Citations and MS Word
This tutorial explains how to use MS Word most effectively to create a “References” or “Works Cited” page, focusing on setting paragraphs, hanging indents, wrap-arounds, etc.  The examples reference MLA and APA, but can be used with any citation format. This is entirely focused on formatting.

Of all the tutorials I've made on citation, this is the one the students go back to again and again.  They are not as "savvy" when it comes to using MS Word as we might imagine digital natives would be; they need help to understand how to set the ruler and paragraph features.  They need an explanation of terms such as "hanging indent."  This tutorial helps them with these needs.
