Purdue OWL has some great citation guides that can help you with your papers
From the website: "Use the EndNote plug-in to insert references, and format citations and bibliographies automatically while you write your papers in Word. This plug-in also allows you to save online references to your library in Internet Explorer for Windows."
Install the Plug-In on your personal computer. If you install it on a lab computer it will disappear after you log-out.
