As Natalie looks over the works cited list, she realizes that she mispelled the last name
of one of the authors. You’ll correct the error now, and then update the works cited list.
Modifying an Existing Source
To modify information about a source, you click a citation to that source in the document,
click the Citations Options button on the content control, and then click Edit Source. After
you are fi nished editing the source, Word prompts you to update the master list and the
source information in the current document. In almost all cases, you should click Yes to
ensure that the source information is correct in all places it is stored on your computer.
Managing Sources
When you create a source, Word adds it to a Master List of sources, which is available for
use with any document created using the same user account on that computer. It also
adds each new source to the Current List of sources for that document. Both the Master
List and the Current List are accessible via the Source Manager dialog box, which you
open by clicking the Manage Sources button in the Citations & Bibliography group on the
References tab. Using this dialog box, you can copy sources from the Master List into the
Current List. As you begin to focus on a particular academic field, and turn repeatedly to
important works in your chosen field, you’ll find this ability to reuse sources very helpful.
