The Citation Details for Source Citations citing Source A will remain
citing Source A when Source B is merged with Source A. Citation Details
citing Source B will after the merge not will be cited by Source A.
Thus when a Source merge is done, you need to review all Source Citations
to make sure that the resulting citations are as you want them. For
example, the Citation Details citing either Source A or Source B after the
merge may need added information or deletion due to redundancy.
Hope this helps -
