{{Cite DGRBM|author=|title=|volume=|page=|url=}}

This template should be placed on the main page of the article.

There are five optional parameters:

  • author= refers to the author of the respective entry.
    • In place of author= the parameters first= and last= can be used.
    • The author abbreviation (without periods and spaces) can be used. E.g., "AA" will yield "Alexander Allen". Unsigned articles in the Dictionary are by William Smith (WS) himself.
  • volume= refers to the number of the volume (1, 2 or 3) in which the respective entry appears.
  • page= refers to the page number on which the respective entry appears. This parameter should be used concurrently with "volume".
  • title= refers to the name of the entry in the dictionary.
    • if the article is present on wikisource then use wstitle= in place of title=
  • url= can be used to link the title to an external source ("DGRBM: External links" contains urls to external on-line sources). Do not use this option if wstitle is used as the template automatically includes links to an article on Wikisource.
