Bibliographies in Word

You may have noticed Word has a built-in bibliography tool. This is not recommended where you are required to produce a substantial bibliogrpahy for work such as a dissertation or report. We would recommend instead that you use EndNote.

However in case you might still want to know about this tool, we have produced this brief Guide to Word's built-in bibliography tool.
