QHR is an abbreviation for the Queensland Heritage Register. This template Cite QHR was formerly known as Cite CHIMS, and the old template redirects to this one.

Usage[edit]

This template creates a {{cite web}} citation to individual records in the online database of the Queensland Heritage Register, a useful searchable reference source on Queensland's heritage places.

Parameters[edit]

  • There are two unnamed parameters
  1. Place ID number. This is the only mandatory parameter. It can be found at the end of the URL
  2. An optional title

For example, the Cape Moreton Light record can be referenced using

{{Cite QHR|15032|Cape Moreton Lightstation}}

resulting in:

"Cape Moreton Lightstation (entry 15032)". Queensland Heritage Register. Queensland Heritage Council. 


Or, if one prefers not to mention the title:

{{Cite QHR|15032}}

results in:

"Entry 15032". Queensland Heritage Register. Queensland Heritage Council. 

  • The access date can be specified using the accessdate fields.
  • Error checking is not done at all. Specifying an incorrect ID will result in a link to a non-existing record.

More examples[edit]

{{Cite QHR|15267|Bellevue Homestead|accessdate=2011-02-03}}

result:

"Bellevue Homestead (entry 15267)". Queensland Heritage Register. Queensland Heritage Council. Retrieved 2011-02-03. 

Harvard style referencing[edit]

This template provides a simple Harvard style reference, using QHR followed by the ID number. For example, to reference the Cape Moreton Light use {{sfn|QHR15032}} or {{harvnb|QHR15032}}, as appropriate. However, year referencing is not supported at this time.
