Purpose[edit]

This template facilitates the attribution of articles from editions of American Cyclopaedia that are in the public domain using the template {{Cite AmCyc}} which in turn calls {{Cite encyclopedia}}.

Usage[edit]

{{AmCyc|wstitle=''name of the American Cyclopaedia article here''}}

or with a specification of additional options:

{{AmCyc
 |noicon=''1'' — suppress the leading icon
 |inline=''1'' — changes the prescript and should be used when this template is used as an inline citation
 |short=''1''  — suppresses some of the fields such as editor's name
 |ref=''harv'' — can be overridden (if you need to ask you do not need to change it)
 |wstitle=''AmCyc article'' — if the article is available on Wikisource 
 |display=''alternative name'' — displayed inplace of the wstitle name
 |title=''AmCyc article'' — if the article is not available on Wikisource

 |url=  — will not be set unless the parameter ''title='' is set

 If not set, set in the template Cite AmCyc to default values

displays as:

PD-icon.svg This article incorporates text from a publication now in the public domainRipley, George; Dana, Charles A., eds. (1879). "Pulte, Joseph Hippolyt". The American Cyclopædia 22. p. 799. 

Using display[edit]

The mechanics of Wikisource will sometimes require that a link have disambiguation information which is not part of the original title. The display parameter allows this information to be hidden for the purpose of the citation. For example:

{{AmCyc|wstitle=Monroe (Louisiana) |display=Monroe, La.}}

displays as:

Wikisource-logo.svg This article incorporates text from a publication now in the public domainRipley, George; Dana, Charles A., eds. (1879). "Monroe (Louisiana)". The American Cyclopædia. 

Using noicon[edit]

{{AmCyc|wstitle=Cogniet, Leon|noicon=x}}

displays as:

This article incorporates text from a publication now in the public domainRipley, George; Dana, Charles A., eds. (1879). "Cogniet, Leon". The American Cyclopædia. 

Using title (no Wikisource link)[edit]

{{AmCyc |title=Sterne, Simon}}

displays as:

PD-icon.svg This article incorporates text from a publication now in the public domainRipley, George; Dana, Charles A., eds. (1879). "Sterne, Simon". The American Cyclopædia. 

When title is being used, url can be used to specify an external link. For example:

{{AmCyc
 |title=Sterne, Simon
 |url=http://books.google.com/books?id=cr9PAAAAMAAJ&pg=PA632
}} At [[Google Books]].

displays as:

PD-icon.svg This article incorporates text from a publication now in the public domainRipley, George; Dana, Charles A., eds. (1879). "Sterne, Simon". The American Cyclopædia.  At Google Books.

Using short[edit]

If a shorter citation is desired, containing the editor of the 1920 edition, the long option can be used. For example:

{{AmCyc|wstitle=Schlatter, Michael|short=x}}

displays as:

Wikisource-logo.svg This article incorporates text from a publication now in the public domain"Schlatter, Michael". The American Cyclopædia. 1879. 

If another edition besides 1920 is being used, the editor name can be customized using editor-first and editor-last. If used, these two items will be displayed whether or not the long option is specified.
