IBM and the Holocaust[edit]

I removed this from the template. I see no reason that one book out of the tens of thousands about IBM should be on the template. Also, it seems that the standard on WP is to keep templates limited to things affiliated with the organization. jheiv talk contribs 19:48, 25 April 2011 (UTC)

Whether or not IBM and holocaust are related (see diff) is up for debate, but the book in question is a NYT best seller that directly discusses the company, and policy provides for its inclusion here, since WP:NAVBOX outlines the template's use for "a group of related articles". The navboxes for many organizations include links to unflattering articles, but WP abides by NPOV. If there are other books about IBM with WP articles—flattering or unflattering—they should be included here, so long as they are notable enough to merit an article on WP. —Eustress talk 13:55, 25 November 2011 (UTC)

IBM Type-III Library[edit]

I propose adding IBM Type-III Library (COI: I started the article) to this template, probably alongside SHARE (computing). John Vandenberg (chat) 02:57, 13 June 2016 (UTC)
