The template goes at the top of an article. The previous and next should be filled in, even when those entries have not been created yet. This template is to be used at the top of every entry in the Encyclopedia.

  • | previous =
    • Type in the name of the previous entry. It will create a link to it.
  • | next =
    • Same as above but goes to next entry.
  • | wikipedia =
    • Link to wikipedia article. Fill in the name of the article for this parameter. If there is no wikipedia article, leave it blank or remove it.
  • | wikipedia2 =
    • Parameter for a second, relevant wikipedia article.
  • | commonscat = category at Commons
  • | wikiquote = page at wikiquote
  • | wiktionary = definition at wiktionary
  • | year =
    • This is for noting the year of publication for the edition from which the article was obtained. It defaults to 1921.
  • | contributor =
    • If the contributor of the article is known, that name can be assigned here (this field will be wikilinked, pointing to the Author: namespace)
  • | extra_notes =
    • This is useful for notifying the reader of significant changes since the article was published, or other useful information about the article not appropriate to the previous parameters.
  • | override_notes =
    • This is useful when this template is used as a header for pages in this project which are not articles from the Encyclopedia. Its use should be restricted to such contexts. If set to nothing, the usual default notes will not be displayed. If set to some text, that text will be displayed instead of the default notes.
  • | section =
    • This is useful in extraordinary situations where the normal display of the SUBPAGENAME is not desired. For example, it is used to implement the examples below since otherwise the SUBPAGENAME of this documentation page (doc) would be displayed instead of the SUBPAGENAME of the article (Abbey, Edwin Austin) for which the header would be used.

The page name for any article using this template as a header should be prefixed by Collier's New Encyclopedia (1921)/. This prefix is followed by the name of the subject, as specified in the Encyclopedia, but without all caps. For example Collier's New Encyclopedia (1921)/Abbey, Edwin Austin.
