Writing up bibliographies can be hard work – it can take up so much time and be boring to keep note of the different websites you use. Luckily, Google Docs has a built-in explore function which allows you to Google Search within the application as well as cite any websites you may have used.
STEP 1: OPEN GOOGLE DOCS
You can find Google Docs but searching for it on Google or using the three by three grid at the top right next to your avatar on Google.
STEP 2: THE EXPLORE FUNCTION
The ‘Explore’ function allows you to search through Docs as well as cite neatly at the bottom of the page. To find this option, go to the main navigation bar at the top and click on ‘Tools’, then select ‘Explore’. A side bar should pop up on the right and you can begin to search for what you’re looking for.
STEP 3: THE CITE FUNCTION
On the Search results, if you hover over the website you clicked on, an icon with two small speech marks will appear – click on these and the cite information will appear at the bottom of the doc in Harvard Referencing format.
STEP 4: BE HAPPY WITH HOW MUCH TIME YOU’VE SAVED NOT HAVING TO TYPE OUT YOUR BIBLIOGRAPHY!
