Adding References

If Web Publisher databases are published with Read/Write Access, references can be added.


To add a reference to a published database:

  1. From the homepage, click the 'Create a new record' link, or click the New Record button on any Search Results List page. A blank reference page appears.

  2. Confirm or change the database where the new reference should be saved. Changing the database will refresh the page providing fields defined specifically for that database.

  3. Confirm or change the reference type in the Reference Type field which is Generic by default. Changing the reference type will refresh the page updating the fields for that reference type.

  4. Type information for each field, if available.


Note: You can click the Cancel button to cancel your edits and return to the Search Results list.


  1. Click the Save button in the upper right corner of the page.

  2. New references added to a published database are automatically assigned a Ref ID.


The new reference displays in the Record View page.

Duplicating References

To quickly add references that share common data:

  1. Add one reference with all the common information following the instructions above.   

  2. From the new reference's Record View page, click the Duplicate button.

  3. Enter remaining data in the duplicate reference's fields.

  4. Click the Save button.

  5. Repeat steps 2-4 for each duplicate reference you wish to add to the database.
