Additional links will be generated to WorldCat using, in order of preference, LCCN, LCCNid and then OCLC. If none of these are given, it will use the LCCNbook and finally the page name to contruct a link to a search query.
Authority data on persons from the German National Library.
The PND can be found via http://viaf.org. They are marked with a little German flag (). The PND entries in the VIAF datasets are linked to the entries in the online catalogue of the German National Library. On that site, the PND can either be found in the browser's adress bar as part of the website's adress or as the last part of a web adress in the field named "Link zu diesem Datensatz".
Note that, for identities, the LCCN has to be formatted in a special way so it can be used in the template: it consists of a alphabetic prefix ("n", "nr", "no", etc..), the year (two digits, four digits since 2001) and a 6-digit serial number. These parts have to be separated by a "/" and leading zeros of the serial number have to be removed.
"n 79063767" → "n/79/63767"
"n 79022889" → "n/79/22889"
"no2010136878" → "no/2010/136878"
For books and publications, the LCCN should be a simple numeric 8- or 10-digit call number.
The template is be able to detect that it is being used in the author namespace and process the call number appropriately. However, if desired, separate parameters can be used to force the correct behaviour. For people rather than books, use the parameter LCCNid. For books rather than people, use the parameter LCCNbook. Either will override LCCN.
International authority data from the Online Computer Library Center (OCLC). The VIAF combines authority records from around 20 national libraries and other authority files like the Getty Union List of Artist Names.
The VIAF ID corresponding to the subject of the article can be found on http://viaf.org, which combines authority records from many organizations worldwide into single datasets. Enter the person's name in the search field and find the corresponding dataset in the search results. The VIAF ID can be found underneath the name list. If the entries for a particular person in the various authority records haven't been merged into a single VIAF dataset yet, use the VIAF ID that contains the subject's LCCN. Sooner or later VIAF will merge them into one dataset and redirect to this from old IDs.
The identifier can be found via http://viaf.org. The VIAF datasets containing such identifiers link to the authority records at http://libris.kb.se . Copy the number in the last part of that web address and paste it into the SELIBR parameter in the template.
Note that only records where the name field is labeled "Person" are valid PND records that can be used in this template. If the name field is labeled "Name", this particular record is not individualized, which means that the record can contain publications of various authors of the same name.
Records in the Archival Research Catalog clearly display an "ARC Identifier" among the details. Other entries, including people, can be found in the "Index Terms" section of records, for example as contributors or subjects. In these cases, the number can be found in the link URL (following the id=) but not in the URL of the page if the link is followed.
The template will detect the namespace and link to an author, if used in the Author namespace; to a topical subject, is used in the Portal namespace; or a title, if used elsewhere. This behaviour can be forced by using ARCid for authors, ARCitem for items (such as books) in the catalog, ARCorg for organisations, ARCsub for topical subjects or ARCgeo for geographical locations. Either parameter overrides the plain ARC parameter.
You must use the full 11-letter identifier, including the "cb" prefix and the final check character for the link to work. If you use the 8-digit BNF identifier from the VIAF overview, the link will not work. You can get the full identifier by clicking through to the processed VIAF record and looking for field "009".
Creates a link to an entry on the Internet Book List
This number can be found in the URL.
The template will detect the namespace and link to an author, if used in the Author namespace, or a title, elsewhere. This behaviour can be forced by using IBLid for authors or IBLbook for books. Either parameter overrides the plain IBL parameter.
For example, Dracula by Bram Stoker has the URL www.isfdb.org/cgi-bin/title.cgi?2072, where the number to be entered into the template is 2072.
The template will detect the namespace and link to an author, if used in the Author namespace, or a title, elsewhere. This behaviour can be forced by using ISFDBid for authors, ISFDBtitle for titles or ISFDBpub for publications (the latter is not available with the plain parameter only). All three parameters override the plain ISFDB parameter.
↑Where more than one parameter term is shown under "Parameter name", the first is generic while the indented terms specify the scope of the authority control reference. This is intended where an authority has different methods of indexing works, identities and/or subjects. If the generic term is used, the template will determine the correct method based on the namespace.
