Word Citation Review

January 3, 2012


Word Citation is a useful tool used within Microsoft word. Word Citation is a way to make you mla, apa, or Chicago citations within your documents. Word Citation saves your citations in an easily accessible list. When you need to insert a in-text citation all you have to do is double-click, making it convenient. I had problems figuring out how to insert the full citation and not an in-text citation. It made it very challenging and I would have preferred to use another citation tool like noodle-bib that was set up more clearly even though Word Citation is more convenient. If I have projects in the future that required a lot of in-text citation using Word Citation would be helpful otherwise I do not plan to use it in the future.
