    This tool searches your entire library (i.e., all reference fields for all references in all groups)
  4. Enter a search term in the Find Citations box to find the reference or references to insert.
  5. Click Search.
  6. Select the desired reference. To insert multiple references in one citation, click each reference while holding the Ctrl key.

The citation appears at the cursor location, formatted according to the bibliographic style specified. The reference information is also automatically added to the bibliography at the end of your manuscript.
