Jan. 20: Research Tools within Google Drive

Students can do research using Google straight from their Google Doc. Citations can even be made automatically!

Step-by-Step Instructions

1. While in Google Docs, click Tools > Research.

2. Enter a search term, or right-click on a word or phrase in your document.

3. Results can be previewed by hovering over a link, or a link to the site can be inserted by clicking a button.

4. All pictures dragged and dropped will be automatically cited, and all websites can be cited as well, by clicking Cite button.

5. Citations are available in MLA, APA, and Chicago format.
