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 item number in the URL (is there an easier way to find this?). Enter this number in the template as the first parameter.
