Parameters[change source]

name
Designed for the original name of the library. With libraries in multilingual countries, add the other official names, preceded by '<br/>= '. With libraries having a name in a non-Latin script, use the original name in its script, followed by '<br/>' and its transliteration between parentheses.
name_en
Library name in English. Prefer the English name that the library may use itself instead of a literal translation. A redundancy with the page title is likely but does not matter in this case.
logo
File name only (no Image: or File:), use logo_upright= to change scaling (<1.0 for tall logo, >1.0 wide logo)
image
File name only (no Image: or File:), use image_upright= to change scaling (<1.0 for tall image, >1.0 wide image)
caption
Description of the image above.
country
To be omitted when the country name appears in the library name (original or in English).
type
Prefer denominations leading to an existing page describing the type of library, such as Academic library, National library, Public library, Special library etc. Should be omitted when the relevant word is already present in the library's name.
scope
To be used if a library is specialized in a particular domain but which is not reflected in its name.
established
Foundation year. Use {{Start date}} template. If the library is still open and operating the {{Start date and age}} template can also be used.
dissolved
Date of dissolution or closure. Use {{End date}} template.
ref_legal_mandate
Designed for referencing the law or decree establishing the library and defining its mandate.
location
Normally just town and, where appropriate, province. A full address could be entered for libraries having no website of their own. Avoid redundancies, e.g. repeating the country if it is already mentioned in the 'country' field or in the library's name.
service area
The geographic region served by the library, if not already established in earlier parameters.
coordinates
Entered with a tag {{coord|'latitude'|'longitude'|display=inline,title}}. With this code, the coordinates will also appear on the top of the page (but this redundancy is not considered problematic). Remove ",title" from the "display" parameter to omit the display of the coordinates on the top right.
branch_of
Designed for libraries that are known enough to justify an entry in WP but have little or no autonomy, being a branch of another (larger) library.
num_branches
Number of branches, not counting the headquarters, followed by their location between parentheses.

Collection[change source]

The header 'Collection' will appear only if at least one of the 4 fields below contains data.

items_collected
Allows the specification of the kinds of documents acquired by the library. Prefer denominations having their own page.
collection_size
It makes reading easier to round numbers to 2-3 significant figures using {{Format price}} this allows the source to hold the most accurate number while displaying a much easier to read number formatted per MOS:Dates and numbers.
criteria
Allows to specify the kind of documents the library acquires, be it in its legal mandate or its policy.
legal_deposit
Intended for national libraries, to specify whether they can acquire material through legal deposit, copyright legislation or other kind of agreement.

Access and use[change source]

The header 'Access and use' will appear only if at least one of the 4 fields below contains data.

req_to_access
Allows to specify the conditions to be met for accessing the collections, such as residence, age, membership of a specific community etc.
annual_circulation
Number of lent or used items followed by the period concerned, preferably the most recent past year, between parentheses.
pop_served
Allows to specify the number of potential users when the library serves a specific group, be it by area of residence, age, membership etc. Can be omitted when the circle of potential users is vaguely defined, e.g. for national libraries which, as generally last resource library for national material, may serve the entire world. It makes reading easier to round numbers to 3 significant figures using {{Format price}} and format numbers per MOS:Dates and numbers.
members
Number of registered users. It makes reading easier to round numbers to 3 significant figures using {{Format price}}.

Other information[change source]

The header 'Other information' will appear only if at least one of the 5 fields below contains data.

budget
Annual budget with specification of the currency using {{currency}}, followed by the year concerned (ideally the current one) between parentheses. It makes reading easier to round numbers to 2-3 significant figures, abbreviate millions by an unspaced 'M' and provide the equivalent in US dollars between parentheses. Templates that can also be helpful here are {{Inflation}} and {{Format price}}.
director
When a name is transliterated, provide the name in its original script between parentheses. Add the year of the appointment between parentheses.
num_employees
Number of employees, ideally followed by the number of full-time equivalents (input: [[Full-time_equivalent|FTE]]). It makes reading easier to round numbers to 3 significant figures by using {{Format price}}.
website
If the website has a home page in English, link directly to it using {{URL}}. Otherwise, specify the language(s) in which the website is.
references
References used specifically to populate infobox.

Microformat[change source]

The HTML markup produced by this template includes an hCard microformat, which makes the place-name and location parsable by computers, either acting automatically to catalogue articles across Wikipedia, or via a browser tool operated by a person, to (for example) add the subject to an address book. Within the hCard is a Geo microformat, which additionally makes the coordinates (latitude & longitude) parsable, so that they can be, say, looked up on a map, or downloaded to a GPS unit. For more information about the use of microformats on Wikipedia, please see the microformat project.

Sub-templates[change source]

If the place or venue has an "established", "founded", "opened" or similar date, use {{start date}} unless the date is before 1583 CE.

If it has a URL, use {{URL}}.

Please do not remove instances of these sub-templates.

Classes[change source]

hCard uses HTML classes including:

  • adr
  • agent
  • category
  • county-name
  • extended-address
  • fn
  • label
  • locality
  • nickname
  • note
  • org
  • region
  • street-address
  • uid
  • url
  • vcard

Geo is produced by calling {{coord}}, and uses HTML classes:

  • geo
  • latitude
  • longitude

Please do not rename or remove these classes nor collapse nested elements which use them.

Precision[change source]

When giving coordinates, please use an appropriate level of precision. Do not use {{coord}}'s |name= parameter.
