This template is designed for use within any article requiring the citation of source information. It creates a list of references at the point of the article in which this template is added, usually under a references section heading at the end of the article. The information utilized to populate this list of references is defined by use of the <ref> and <ref name> tags within the body of an article.
A number can be utilized to define a column parameter built into the template's design. By default this perimeter is defined as 1, but can be changed by including a different number after the template name. |} |}
