Abstract

You know the basics about using citation templates. Do you know how to use the extended set of parameters for the Citation Style 1 templates?

  • Establishing anchors for use with the template suite supporting shortened footnotes and parenthetical referencing
  • Using the OCLC parameter to link to nearby libraries through Worldcat, and what to do when there is more than one OCLC
  • What is the DOI and when should you use it

What lies beyond citation templates?

  • Using refill to expand bare URLs
  • Citations in Wikidata: If the French can do it, why can’t the English (speakers) do it?
