Purpose[edit]

Template for web links to Neue Deutsche Biographie (NDB) articles, as used on German Wikipedia for over 6000 articles of the more than 21,000 NDB biographies that have been published, with 3,5200 further articles expected to be added in four further volumes until 2017.

Usage[edit]

Standard unnamed parameters as used in the German original:

*{{NDB|Vol|Start page|End page|Biographed person|Author of biography|PND number}}

Additional named parameters (see the {{citation}} documentation for more details)

|separator=defaults to the value in {{citation}} — it can be altered to another value
|postscriptdefaults to the value in {{citation}} — it can be altered to another value
|ref=either defaults to Author of biography, year or if the unnamed "Author" (parameter 5)
     is not set it defaults to NBD, year — like the other parameters the default values
                          can be overridden (which can be useful when used with {{harv}}
                          templates (see more than one work in a year). 
|year=defaults to a value set by the unnamed Vol (parameter 2). — it can be altered to
                          another value, which is sometimes useful in combination with the
                          parameter and value ref=harv.

Usage notes[edit]

The template does not include an item bullet and so is easy to use in a footnote citation. In a list, the template should be preceded by an asterisk, as specified in the usage section above.
