What sorts of references are wanted?[edit]

These lists are flagged as needing references in 2013. Books with a link to a current Wikipedia article usually include publication history, or have a box with first year of publication indicated. If there is a current article on the book with that information, is it needed to add a source like Fantastic Fiction in this list article?

Perhaps the references are wanted for the births and the deaths, and for the books with no current Wikipedia article? In my naivete, I had thought this list for the year built up from the books with articles posted about them. :-) Not so, I see. Clarification on where sources are wanted would help.

Leads of year pages[edit]

Awards, births, deaths, all covered by "events". Bmcln1 (talk) 22:41, 19 December 2015 (UTC)


Is that intuitively obvious to a Wikipedia reader? It is not obvious to me, so I believe it is better to be clear about what is to be included, rather than use a vague and general word. --Prairieplant (talk) 11:30, 21 December 2015 (UTC)

Further, the Events section heading does not include all the things you list. Rather it marks a few major things, like the opening of a museum. The rest of the events are listed under their own heading. --Prairieplant (talk) 11:33, 21 December 2015 (UTC)
