Automation & possible rename[edit]

I like the idea of this template, but it needs to automatically update from Module:Authority control to be of long-term use, à la p.docConfTable, and not hard-coded. I'll work on this in the near future.

Also, {{Authority control files}} might be a more appropriate name & navbox heading.   ~ Tom.Reding (talkdgaf)  15:45, 31 August 2019 (UTC)

Thanks, Tom.Reding. I was simply thinking about a regular navobx, and I don't know any that are automatically updated. But since the most sensible inclusion criteria is the module, your idea sounds interesting.
I've moved the template based on your suggestion. I'm not a librarian so I wasn't completely sure about the title to begin with.
I'm thinking about making similar navboxes for other identifiers as well, namely those found in {{Taxonbar}} and {{Medical resources}}. – Finnusertop (talkcontribs) 15:56, 31 August 2019 (UTC)
 Done. Do you want to add the template to all of its constituent links?   ~ Tom.Reding (talkdgaf)  00:42, 2 September 2019 (UTC)
If you want to, Tom.Reding. But personally I tend to prefer to have the most relevant navboxes only. – Finnusertop (talkcontribs) 03:15, 2 September 2019 (UTC)
