In the previous post of mine, I mentioned how to create a Citation in Word 13 document. In this post, I will describe how to create a Bibliography in a Word13 document.

First, what is a Bibliography?

A list of source materials that are used as references in our document. The Bibliography that we create, we usually place at the end of our document. In order to create a Bibliography we must have created Citations in our document. Below I will describe the feature of inserting a Bibliography in a Word 13 document.

First, we must select the References tab and then from the area of the ribbon named Citations &Bibliographywe select the arrow next to the command Bibliography as shown in the image below. A drop down menu appears where we first notice that some BuiltInBibliography, References and WorkCited are available to use. If we have created, Citations own our own we just use the command InsertBibliography that is located at the bottom of the drop down menu.

If we have not created any Citations in our document and we have used the command Insert Bibliography from the bottom of the menu the message There Are No Sources In The Current Document as we can see in the image below.

In the image below, I have chosen the command InsertBibliography from the drop down menu and straight away the Bibliography is inserted in our document.

In the image below, I have selected the Built In Bibliography from the drop down menu and straight away the Bibliography is inserted in our document.

If we click in the Bibliography, Reference or WorksCited, it will be activated as shown in the image below. If we had change any information in any of the sources by selecting the command UpdateCitations and Bibliography, all the new information will be displayed in the Bibliography, Reference or WorksCited.

In the image below, I have selected the Built In References from the drop down menu and straight away the References is inserted in our document.

In the image below, I have selected the Built In Works Cited from the drop down menu and straight away the Works Cited is inserted in our document.

The more sources that we have in our document the bigger and more informational our Bibliography will be.
