There are occasions when you may need to add a reference manually, where it is not available from an online source.
Click on the File menu or icon, and then Add entry manually.
Select the type of reference from the drop-down menu.
Fill in the fields accordingly, and Save.
You do not need to complete every field, just add the information you need for creating the reference.
You can attach a file to a record, such as a PDF of the full text of the document.
