Block quote

This is a template for linking to entries in the Historic American Buildings Survey database on the Library of Congress website. Sample usage is as follows:

 {{HABS |survey=MD-1167 |id=md1633 |title=Evergreen |photos=146 |color=16 |dwgs=30 |data=233 |cap=9}}

Required parameters:

  • survey. The "Survey Number" from the HABS database entry. Always consists of a two-letter state abbreviation (all upper case) followed by a hyphen and one or more numbers. Subsidiary structures on a common site may have a second hyphen followed by one or more letters. (Some older HABS surveys have numbers instead of letters after the second hyphen.)
  • id. The last six digits from the "Bookmark This Record" link given in the HABS database entry. Always consists of a two-letter state abbreviation (all lower case) followed by four numbers.
  • title. The "Title" from the HABS database entry. You may include only the name of the structure and omit any subsequent information about location, etc. This parameter is not required when the template is used in "short" mode.

Optional parameters:

  • photos. The number of photos listed in the HABS database entry.
  • color. The number of color transparencies listed in the HABS database entry.
  • dwgs. The number of measured drawings listed in the HABS database entry.
  • data. The number of data pages listed in the HABS database entry. Note that the database will typically display a "Data Pages" box, even if no data pages are listed, because this is the hard copy record cover sheet; the cover sheet does not count as a data page.
  • cap. The number of photo caption pages listed in the HABS database entry.
  • supp. Set to "yes" if supplemental material is shown in the HABS database entry.

Control parameters:

  • link. Set to "no" for subsequent instances of this template on the same page; this will shorten the output from "Historic American Buildings Survey" to "HABS" and avoid overlinking.
  • short. Set to "yes" for a highly abbreviated external link, displaying the survey number only, for use in tabular lists.

This template is for Historic American Buildings Survey (HABS) entries only; use {{HALS}} and {{HAER}} for the other collections created by Heritage Documentation Programs.
