Hello all. I am just starting to work on my research paper at my university. I am bit confused in how to include references in my research paper. Is it Ok to use the MW word format of assigning foot notes to each of the refrences. Or is there a particular format that I have to use to college research papers.

This is really a question that you should pose to your instructor or consult your student handbook because universities vary on what they want. Mine required APA formatted papers, but I know of others that require MLA. Whatever they require, I would avoid using the built-in MS Word reference tool. I don't know how well it performs with MLA, but it always failed to produce proper citations and reference pages in APA format. You would be better off doing everything manually, or if you must, shell out the $30 or so for Perrla ( Perrla is almost always up to date unless we are right around the release time of a new edition of the APA manual. It usually only takes them a few weeks to update to the current APA conventions.
