This is the {{WorldCat}} template. This template is used for formatting the text and links for WorldCat items generally used in source citations. Only one parameter is used and required, the WorldCat item number. When you search http://www.WorldCat.org/ for a title, you will find the OCLC number in details section of the edition. Alternatively, it may be shown in the URL immediately after the "oclc" text. Enter this number in the template as the first parameter.

An optional parameter disp can be specified, allowing the user to control the link text.
