Template parameters

Parameter Description Default Status
Title This is the original title given in the NARA catalog record. empty optional
Scope and content If an item has a "Scope and content" tab in its catalog record, include it here. These are notes written by the archivists. empty optional
General notes If an item has a "General note(s):" field in its catalog record, include it here. These are notes written by the archivists. empty optional
Description Other notes by and description by Wikimedians can go here. empty optional
ARC This is the standard, unique ID which points to the item's specific catalog record in ARC (Archival Research Record). It is used to generate the URL for the record. This is absolutely required unless (rarely) the item is not cataloged in ARC, for example if it has been scanned independently by an on-site researcher. empty optional
Local identifier This is an ID which does not have a standard form like ARC, but is used by the department which is responsible for the document. It is important if given, but only some documents have a local identifier. empty optional
Creator This is the creator of the record, which is usually not the same as the author. Typically, this is the agency whose records contain the document uploaded. empty optional
Author This is the writer, artist, photographer, videographer, etc. who actually made the document. These are often not part of the catalog records, or might only be noted as an "index term," and so must be added manually. empty optional
Location Still Picture Records Section, Special Media Archives Services Division (NWCS-S), National Archives at College Park, 8601 Adelphi Road, College Park, MD, 20740-6001. empty optional
Date Date of creation empty optional
Record group The record group, series, and file group information can all be found in the "Hierarchy" tab. The "record group" is the collection-level division of records, which typically includes the records of an entire agency. empty optional
Record group ARC Each record group should have its own ARC ID which will link to the record group's catalog record. empty optional
Series The record group, series, and file group information can all be found in the "Hierarchy" tab. The "series" is a smaller subset of the record group arranged according to some unifying characteristic like a common author or event. empty optional
Series ARC Each series should have its own ARC ID which will link to the record group's catalog record. empty optional
File unit The record group, series, and file group information can all be found in the "Hierarchy" tab. The "file unit" is another yet-smaller optional subgrouping of the series. Only some items belong to file units, while most will belong directly to a series. empty optional
File unit ARC Each file unit, if one exists, should have its own ARC ID which will link to the record group's catalog record. empty optional
Variant control numbers Generally, most items will have at least one variant control number listed, the obsolete "NAIL Control Number." There may also be multiple NAILs. These can be included for completeness here. There may be other special control numbers which should also be included. Use manual line breaks ("") to separate control numbers. empty optional
TIFF Use "yes" to indicate that the file uploaded is a high-resolution TIFF master file of the original National Archives scan. empty optional
Text Use "no" if there is no text to transcribe. (Note: Depends on the 'TIFF' parameter being set to "yes".) empty optional
Other versions TIFF files are intended to be converted to JPEG for graphical documents and DjVu for textual documents. As well, TIFF files for multi-page documents will be uploaded as separate files. Use "Other versions" to display other pages for the same document as well as derivative files using <gallery> and labeling the pages and file formats with captions, as was done here. empty optional
Derivative If the file is a derivative and not the original file, set this parameter to yes or similar in order to avoid the message about not changing the file. empty optional
medium Field inherited from {{Artwork}}'s template. empty optional
dimensions Field inherited from {{Artwork}}'s template. empty optional
institution Field inherited from {{Artwork}}'s template. Use to overwrite the default value {{Institution:National Archives and Records Administration}} optional
references Field inherited from {{Artwork}}'s template. empty optional
object history Field inherited from {{Artwork}}'s template. empty optional
notes Field inherited from {{Artwork}}'s template. empty optional
inscriptions Field inherited from {{Artwork}}'s template. empty optional
credit line Field inherited from {{Artwork}}'s template. empty optional
