Revision as of 18:23, 3 August 2010

At this time, this only works based upon film, fiche, or book number. Other IDs or other cases are not set up to work as examples may be needed or other answers. Are there other cases needed to link to the Family History Library Catalog? If so, please discuss them in the right section on the Discussion page.

This is the {{FHL}} template. This template is used for formatting the text and links for FHL items generally used in source citations. Only one parameter is used and required, the FHL item number. When you search the Family History Library Catalog at http://www.FamilySearch.org/, you will find the call number which should be entered in the template as the first parameter.

Examples

Entered Produces Notes
Current FHLC
{{FHL|782195}} FHL 782195 Link. No type specified. Either a book call number (starts with a '9') or a film number (this case). This is the recommended method.
{{FHL| 782195}} FHL 782195 Spaces before and after are automatically sucked up. For film numbers only, should commas & periods (international) be sucked up?
{{FHL|941.5 D27gj}} FHL 941.5 D27gj Link. Book automatically detected since they ALWAYS start with a '9'!
{{FHL|782195|junk}} FHL 782195 Invalid type. Do same as no type specified.
{{FHL}} INVALID/MISSING FHL number Missing number
Are these needed?
{{FHL|782195|film}} FHL 782195 Hard indicated as a film. Do we need this?
{{FHL|941.5 D27gj|book}} FHL 941.5 D27gj Hard indicated as a book. Do we need this?
{{FHL|343687|item}} FHL Collection Link. For some unusual cases. The display would not make sense to display the ID used internal to the FHLC. Do we need this?
