If the computer you are using is loaded with Word 2016 for Office 365 and you have research and citations to do then using the built-in "Research" function that will help find resources and will also automatically build your citations and bibliography is probably a good idea!
Keeping in mind that you still need to check the validity (not Wikipedia) of all your sources and you can use sources that don't come from the internet as well (really! its true!) you will find this a huge help. Don't forget to check out all the "Explora" resources available for MCA students by searching the HelpDesk. You will find dozens of helpful articles and videos! You may also find the accompanying video to help this walk-through by clicking here.
Note: this will only work with the Office (Word) 2016 that Maranatha Christian Academy offers to all our families. If you are using a different version of Word then this will not appear for you.
