Reference Training: Graduate Students - Helpful Information

The purpose of this guide is to provide information on reference service and resources for library staff and others who may have the opportunity to assist patrons in a liaison's absence.

How can I use different page numbering schemes within the same MS Word document?

To restart the page numbers in a document (with a new number/style), insert a section break at the top of the page where the numbering should restart. 

The section break isn’t inserted in the footer; instead put the cursor at the top of the page and choose ‘Page Layout’>’Breaks’>’Section Breaks’, ‘Next Page’. After inserting the section break,   highlight the page number in the footer and use the “format page numbers” option.

 The tutorial example is using this method in order to start renumbering the pages using the same numbering style, but it also works when switch numbering styles.
