Usage tips

When you put this template on a Wikipedia article, please be kind to the regular Wikipedians who are working on those articles. This should be placed at the bottom of the article, usually the External links section. Sometimes it simply won't fit within the Wikipedia article at the bottom, so you may have to use some judgement: think about using the in-line version, {{DNB Cite}}. If the article is about a Wikisource author, it will usually be better to just put a link in the "Works about" section of the author page in Wikisource using Wikisource:Template:DNB Link.
