  • 2. The purpose of this presentation…
    Create lively reports by inserting different footnotes, endnotes and citations from different sources into your document.
    Help the audience understand where these sources come from.
    Make quick references on what you find to share with the audience.
  • 3. What is a footnote?
    Footnotes are references placed at the bottom of a page. You can use either numbers or symbols. For our presentation, we will be using numbers.
  • 4. How to insert a footnote
    When you get to a point in your report where you want to add a footnote:
    At the top of your report, click the “Reference” tab.
    In the Footnote group, click “Insert Footnote”. Once this is done, you will see a number appear at the bottom of your page. This is where you insert your reference information.
    As you continue writing your report, the footnotes will automatically be numbered in sequence.
  • 5. What is an endnote?
    An endnote is like a footnote, except that it appears at the end of a report instead of the end of a page.
  • 6. How to insert an endnote
    Click the “Reference” tab at the top of the page.
    In the Footnote group, click “Insert Endnote”.
    Type endnote information here.
  • 7. What is a citation?
    A citation is a reference telling your audience where your source of information came from.
  • 8. How to Insert a Citation
    Click the “Reference” tab at the top of the page.
    In the Citations & Bibliography group, click “Insert Citation”.
    A box will drop down with options, click “Add New Source”.
    A Create Source box will open, fill in the requested information.
    Click the “OK” box in the bottom right corner when all information is filled in.
