How to Create a Source Reference


How to Edit a Source Reference

1. Find the source reference you wish to edit and select Edit on the Options menu.

Selecting a reference to edit
2. Modify the information about your source. You can either:

  • Correct individual fields,
  • Use the dropdown list(s) at the top of the form to change the source or content types (e.g., Journal instead of Magazine or Editorial instead of Article), or
  • Modify the publication medium if necessary by selecting a different tab at the top of the form (e.g., Web Site instead of Print).

3. Check for any new data required if you have updated the publication medium or source/content type.
4. Click Submit.
5. If there are multiple references in your source list, a link Jump to citation I just edited at the top of your bibliography takes you to the one you just added (which will also be highlighted in your list).

How to Delete and Undelete Source References

Deleting a reference from your source list:

  1. Find the entry you wish to remove and select Delete on the Options menu.
  2. Click OK when asked Are you sure you want to delete this entry?

‚ÄčDeleting a reference

Deleting multiple references at once:

  1. Mark the checkboxes on the left to the references you wish to delete.
  2. Scroll down to the bottom of the screen and click Delete.
  3. Click OK when asked Are you sure you wish to delete all of the entries that are selected above?

Undeleting references:

  1. Click Undelete at the top of the screen.
  2. Restore deleted citations window will appear that allows you mark checkboxes next to the items you wish to recover.
  3. Click Undelete.

 NOTE: Notecards become unlinked from a source when the reference is deleted (they become “thought cards”). If you restore a reference, you will need to relink its notecards (either by editing each notecard and selecting the right item from the Source menu or by selecting multiple notecards on the Notecard Tabletop and clicking Link to source to relink all of them).
