A Referral Tree is a thematic mini-index added to some articles as part of the references section to make it easier for readers to find related Library Data articles.
Most articles won't include a Referral Tree. They are added to overview articles and general discussion topics to point readers to additional information and related articles.
While it is possible to add multiple referral trees to an article, it is preferred to limit the number of such trees to avoid information overload for the readers. There are a few articles which present an overview of Charted Space or similar broad topic area which include several referral trees.
A referral tree doesn't need to include links to every content page on a topic, just a selection of the most important and Illustrative articles. This serves to link each of these topically related overview articles.
A sample of a referral tree might look like this:
Many of the referral trees are created as templates and used like any normal templates. We encourage the use of the Referral Tree templates because as content for these trees is updates, the wiki can update each of the articles.
