Citation Managers: Inserting Citations & Creating Bibliographies

Installing CWYW

When you install EndNote onto your computer, the Cite While You Write toolbar plug in will automatically be added to Microsoft Word, as long as Word is closed during installation.

If you are using Word on a Windows PC, the tool bar will be located on a tab called EndNote X7.

If you are using Word on a Mac, the CWYW toolbar will float on top of Word. If you do not see it, go to View: Toolbars:CWYW.

Inserting references

To insert a reference from your EndNote Web library:

  1. Open your Word document
  2. Place the cursor in the precise location where the reference should appear, 
  3. Click on the Find Citations icon and enter your search term (e.g. author's name) for the reference you require. Highlight the reference and click on Insert or the drop down arrow for other options.

Each time you find and insert a citation in your document, the bibliography automatically formats according to the style selected. (Note you can only use the styles provided by EndNote Web).You can change the bibliographic styles from the Style: drop down menu.
