Hanging Indents

Not sure how to create hanging indents for your Works Cited page?  Try the following links:

  • Microsoft Word: easiest method, works for MS Word versions 2013 and later.
  • Microsoft Word: this method has more steps, but works in older versions of MS Word.
  • Google Docs:  even more steps, this method works in Google Docs as well as any version of Word.

If you use a different program to type your paper, try a Google search for the phrase "hanging indent" plus the name of the software.
