In this article, I will show how you can insert citations in Microsoft Word 2016. The bibliography is also like the citation. If you have ever seen some information on the front, cover page of a book like (white Death, 1999) this. I am sure you have seen if you have read a book. Nowadays most of the people put only the author’s name on the front and the publisher, date of publishing at another place. People used to put the author’s name and date of publishing at one place. I can say that the citations work better with the technology version, not with the printed books. You can type the Authors name on the front cover easily; there is no need to fill some information just to get brackets and the title. What is the need of Citation?

The citation and bibliography may not be a clever thing to use for printed books but it is very effective while you are presenting a book on mobile, computers and other devices. Normally you can use the citations and bibliography for the books of yours. If you have, many books in a document then just insert a bibliography or citation to recognize the parts of the book. So without wasting the time let’s move towards inserting citations and bibliography.

I think I have explained the citation much to you and I hope you know where you can use it. The citation option is in the references tab of Microsoft Word 2016. Many people think that the references Tab has the most complicated options and tools to use but they are wrong. Once you know what they do, it will be very easy to use.

Find the citation option from the citations & bibliography Group. Click on citation and then select New Course. Once you click on the option, a new window will appear in which you have to type some information about the book. You can provide a short information and a full and detailed information. As my opinion, you must give more information about the book because it will be easy for you later to find. You have to fill the blank spaces that are provided. For example, Name of the book, Publisher, and year of publish. Look at the following picture.
