editing question

Is it OK to add content from one page to another by linking to the original page *without* original citation, since it's already cited on the original page?

@maxlath @vickysteeves @jums - perhaps you know? As a newbie to the wikiverse, I'm totally overwhelmed by the layers of policy and custom.

@douginamug @vickysteeves @jums the link alone should be ok if you phrase it as a place where to learn more about a given subject, but if you make a statement that requires a reference, I guess it's better to duplicate the reference to know where this statement comes from, even if it is removed from the other page. (but I'm no wikipedia policy expert)
