Template documentation[view] [edit] [history] [purge]

This template can be used to cite a finding aid or other instance of archival metadata that has been freely licensed under a Creative Commons Attribution-ShareAlike 3.0 and GNU Free Documentation license.

Articles that use this template are added to the tracking category Category:Articles_that_include_text_from_freely_licensed_archival_metadata, which is a hidden category.

Usage[edit]

This template was originally created to be used with the RAMP editor, which will automatically add it to the ==Notes and references== section of an article. Although the RAMP editor will also attempt to prepopulate the values of the template's parameters, prepopulated values should always be verified against the original document.

Note that although this template adds CC BY-SA 3.0 and GFDL atttributions to the citation, a CC BY-SA 3.0 and GFDL license statement must still be added to the webpage where the text was originally published (assuming it has been published online).

This template includes four required parameters (title, url, repository, and location) and three optional parameters (author, date, and accessdate), and it links to Creative Commons Attribution-ShareAlike 3.0 and GNU Free Documentation by default.

{{Cite open archival metadata
