Template documentation[view] [edit] [history] [purge]

Usage[change source]

This template should be placed on the main page of the article.

Method one: Plain[change source]

The template without any parameters:

{{A Short Biographical Dictionary of English Literature}}, or {{SBDEL}}, produces:
 This article incorporates text from a publication now in the public domainCousin, John William (1910). A Short Biographical Dictionary of English Literature. London: J. M. Dent & Sons. Wikisource 

This however is deprecated, always add an SBDEL article name. If it exists on Wikisource then use |wstitle=article name. If it does not then use |title=article name and add an optional URL parameter |url=path name. Without |wstitle= or |title= parameter this citation template will not meet the minimum requirements of WP:V policy (see also WP:CITEHOW)

Method two: one parameter[change source]

The template with one parameter (pipe symbol and article name) that links to the associated article at Wikisource's A Short Biographical Dictionary of English Literature:

{{SBDEL|wstitle=Abbott, Jacob}} produces:
 This article incorporates text from a publication now in the public domainCousin, John William (1910). "Abbott, Jacob". A Short Biographical Dictionary of English Literature. London: J. M. Dent & Sons. Wikisource
