Works by or about Worldcat id in libraries (WorldCat catalog)

Add the template to the "other websites" section of the article to make a link to the Worldcat page related to the article. To use this template, first do a worldcat identities search. Enter the person's name (for example, Samuel Phillips.) This will often lead to a list of possible matches. Choose the right link (for example, "Phillips, Samuel 1752-1802") and click on it. This will lead to the page on worldcat. The id is the string after the last slash in the URL, for example, lccn-n85-221132. Now, fill in your template like this:

{{worldcat id|id=lccn-n85-221132}}
or
{{worldcat id|id=lccn-n85-221132|name=Samuel Philips, LL.D}}
to display a name other than the article name

If "Works by or about" does not make sense, then use a different worldcat template:

{{worldcat subject|name =Foo|id=lccn-n85-221132}} yields
Works about Foo in libraries (Worldcat catalog)
{{worldcat|description="The world's libraries have a strange definition of foo. Neverheless, you can research foo"|name =Foo|id=lccn-n85-221132}} yields
The world's libraries have a strange definition of foo. Neverheless, you can research foo in libraries. (Worldcat catalog)
