The {{page needed}} template, and its plural version {{pages needed}}, function as in-line requests for the specific citation of a page number, or numbers, in a cited work such as a book or journal. Do not use these tags to label citations to named entries in dictionaries or other alphabetically-arranged works with multiple entries per page, as the entry specified is already more specific than a page number. Do not use these tags to label statements which you suspect to be false. Instead, use a dispute template such as {{Dubious}}, or move those statements to the talk page and ask for evidence.

{{Page needed|date=November 2015}}

These tags will categorise tagged articles into Category:Wikipedia articles needing page number citations or a dated subcategory thereof.

These templates are self-references and so are part of the Wikipedia project rather than the encyclopædic content.
