Usage

{{Google books|id|title|page=|keywords=|text=|plainurl=}}

The page, keywords, text, and plainurl parameters are all optional.

The |id= parameter is the string of twelve characters found in the specific Google Books URL after "id=" but before "&".

The |title= parameter is used to specify the publication title when used as a link (and not as a bare URL; |title= is not useful when |plainurl= is used).

The |page= parameter may be used to link to a particular page number. |pg= can be used for "special" pages, e.g. |pg=PR1 for the page numbered "i" or |pg=PP2 for an inside cover (check the specific circumstances as appropriate for the latter as they vary from book to book).

The |keywords= parameter may be used to search for particular keywords within the text (corresponding to the q parameter in the Google URL); |text= searches for a quoted phrase (corresponding to the dq parameter in the Google URL).

The |plainurl= parameter tells the template to output a URL (web address) only, rather than a linked book title and page number. Use |plainurl=yes when using this template in a |url= parameter of a citation template. |plain-url= works as an alias.

For external links, the following all do the same thing:

  • {{Google books|id=id|title=title}}
  • {{Google books|1=id|2=title}}
  • {{Google books|id|title}}

For URLs, the following all do the same thing:

  • {{Google books|id=id|plainurl=yes}}
  • {{Google books|1=id|plainurl=yes}}
  • {{Google books|id|plainurl=yes}}

Example 1:

Doe, John. {{Google books|7ydCAAAAIAAJ|History of the Western Insurrection|page=42}}

creates

Doe, John. History of the Western Insurrection, p. 42, at Google Books.

Example 2:

{{cite book|last=Doe|first=John|title=History of the Western Insurrection|url={{Google books|7ydCAAAAIAAJ|page=42|plainurl=yes}}|page=42}}

creates

Doe, John. History of the Western Insurrection. p. 42.

Example 3:

Doe, John. {{Google books|7ydCAAAAIAAJ|History of the Western Insurrection|pg=PP2}}

creates this which links to the bookplate on the inside cover

Doe, John. History of the Western Insurrection at Google Books.

Example 4:

Doe, John. {{Google books|7ydCAAAAIAAJ|History of the Western Insurrection|pg=PR1}}

creates this which links to the title page complete with inscriptions

Doe, John. History of the Western Insurrection at Google Books.
