More details re:  Works Cited page, by Grace Fleming
1. Type “Works Cited” one inch from the top of your page. This measurement is pretty standard for a word processor, so you shouldn’t have to make any page set-up adjustments–just start typing.
2. Type in the information for each source, double spacing the entire page. Alphabetize the works by author. If there is no author or editor mentioned, use the title.

3. Once you have a complete list, you will format so that you have hanging indents. To do this: highlight the entries, then go to FORMAT and PARAGRAPH. Somewhere in the menu (normally under SPECIAL), find the term HANGING and select it.

4. To insert page numbers, place your cursor on the first page of your text, or the page where you want your page numbers to begin. Go to View and select Header and Footer. A box will appear at the top and the bottom of your page. Type your last name in the top header box before the page numbers and right justify.
