Citation Style Guide: Pre-made citations

Pre-made citations

You don't always have to write citations from scratch. For many books and articles, you can find pre-made citations on OneSearch and Google Scholar.

The only problem is that they often contain errors.  So you have to check them to make sure they're right, and fix anything that is wrong on them.
