104 12
    • 1). Open up a new Word 2007 document on your computer. If you want to add the works cited to the end of an existing document go to the last page in the document, select the"Insert" tab and click "Page Break" to start a new page for the works cited.

    • 2). Open the "Home" tab in the Word toolbar and click the top of your document. Click the "Center" alignment icon in the "Paragraph" group. Type "Works Cited" at the top of the page. Hit the "Enter" key to move down a line and select the "Left" alignment icon in the "Paragraph" group.

    • 3). Click on the arrow in the bottom right corner of the "Paragraph" group to expose the full menu. Go to the "Indentation" section and click the arrow underneath "Special." Choose "Hanging" from the "Special" drop-down menu. The hanging indentation setting will automatically format each entry on your works cited so that the first line is left aligned, and all subsequent lines are indented -- the standard format for references.

    • 4). Click "OK" to save your setting and return to the Word document.

    • 5). Type your works cited alphabetically by last name. Refer to the style guide used to write your document such as APA to determine the spacing and other formatting for your list.
