Inserting Citations Has Saved My Degree

21 Sep

I’m sort of a little bit in love with this one random feature on Word 2013. I know that sounds properly nerdy, but anyone who has ever had to do an academic essay will totally understand.

So basically, I can insert citations with one click. Then at the end of the essay, I can click another button, and it does my bibliography for me, in whatever style I want – Harvard, Cambridge, whatever.

When I first mention a source, I just have to input the data. Image

 

 

After that, whenever I mention that author again, I just have to click Insert Citation and then their information, and it automatically puts the text in for me, like this. After I’ve written the essay, I just go here, pick my style of bibliography…

And then in literally a second…

Am I crazy/lame for really loving this? I’m just so excited about not allowing for an hour of inwardly sobbing while I go through each book I’ve used finding all the random info… then finding out it’s an edited volume and having to do it all again. JUST THINK OF THE EXTRA DRINKING TIME.
