When to use[edit]

Add this to the top of the Further reading section whenever:

  • There are too many publications listed for this article. (Most editors object to more than about half a dozen publications, but the best number for a given article depends on the specific circumstances, and may range from zero to more than a dozen.)
  • One or more of the publications in the list duplicates a citation in the references or notes sections.
  • One or more of the publications present (regardless of number) is inappropriate for any reason.

Please consider "weeding the book farm" yourself, rather than using this tag to ask someone else to do it. Don't forget to remove this template when the concerns appear to have been resolved.
