Description[edit]

This template generates various types of links to the WorldCat web site. Its purpose is similar to Template:OCLC at Wikipedia.

Usage[edit]

In its simplest form the template takes just an OCLC number:

Code:

{{OCLC link|22239204}}

Result:
OCLC:22239204 at WorldCat

Both the link uri and the link name can be overridden with parameters:

Code:

{{OCLC link|uri=http://www.worldcat.org/search?q=su:Radio+Amateurs'+manuals.&qt=hot_subject|linkname=Subject: Radio Amateurs' manuals}}

Result:
Subject: Radio Amateurs' manuals at WorldCat

If you would like to simply make a link without the description you can add "inline=true", which will also work with the other parameters described below.

Code:

{{OCLC link|22239204|73 amateur radio today|inline=true}}

Result:
73 amateur radio today

Parameters[edit]

  • {{{1}}} or oclc - The page URI to link to.
  • uri - Overrides the generated URI.
  • linkname - Overrides the generated link name.
  • inline - If true, display the link alone without any following text. Value can be "true" or "false"; defaults to "false".
  • year - Optionally display a year in parentheses. No value by default.
  • author - Optionally display "by author" following the link. No value by default.
