Add a bibliography in Pages on Mac
Pages works with EndNote, a program for creating bibliographies and managing citations. To take advantage of these features, you must have EndNote X6 or later installed, and you must have assigned, in EndNote, a default library to open when you open EndNote.
Note: If you downloaded Pages from the Mac App Store, you may need to install the Pages EndNote Plug-In.
Choose a bibliography format
If you have the EndNote plug-in, you can use EndNote to add an automatically updating bibliography to the end of your document.
Open EndNote, then choose Edit > Output Styles > Open Style Manager (from the Edit menu at the top of your screen).
Choose the styles you want to appear as format options in Pages.
You can create your own styles by choosing Edit > Output Styles > New Style.
In Pages, choose Edit > EndNote Citations > Bibliography Format, then choose a format.
If you copy a citation’s reference from the body text of a document and then paste the citation into a document (the same or a different document), the citation is added and a bibliography field is added to the end of the document.
Add a citation
If you have the EndNote plug-in, you can use EndNote to add a citation. Citations are added to an automatically updating bibliography at the end of the document.
Click where you want the citation to appear.
To group the citation with another one, place the insertion point right in front of, or right after, the existing citation.
Click in the toolbar, then choose EndNote Citation.
EndNote opens, and the Find window appears.
Enter text in the Find Citation field, then press Return to search your EndNote library for corresponding citations.
Select options using the controls in the Find EndNote Citations window to define how the citation appears in your document.
If you want the citation to appear only in the bibliography and not in the document, select “In Bibliography only.”
Select a citation from the list, enter a page range (if needed), then click Insert.
The citation is added to your document at the insertion point. If you didn’t select “In Bibliography only,” a bibliography field is added at the end of your document.
