Usage[change source]

One of:

  • {{OL author}}
  • {{OL author|id=id of the author as specified at openlibrary.org|cname=name to be displayed}}

|id= is the openlibrary id in the form ####A where #### is a series of one or more digits; do not include 'OL' prefix
|cname= is an optional parameter for the name to be displayed – if omitted, uses page name

Result

Code

{{OL author|id=21491A|cname=Jack Kerouac}}
