2 rules of thought! If you do formal reports, the sources should all be named individually, to form the academic footnotes. Which will lead to a ga zillion different sources. Which, when you begin typing, will scroll down to the matching (if possible) source names. I use the opposite method, I use the names as "categories", IE, just use Census as the name of the source and fill in the basic information in the lower boxes. Just my own personal thoughts,and I am just trying to help!
