Link broken[edit]

The direct link is broken: «La ressource demandée (/scripts/ConsultationTout.exe) n'est pas disponible.» --Nemo 08:33, 15 September 2009 (UTC)

Ah yes, the BNF has changed its system, and old links are broken. I don't know how to correct that. Yann (talk) 13:27, 22 September 2009 (UTC)
OK, I corrected it. Yann (talk) 16:51, 22 September 2009 (UTC)

Link broken (II)[edit]

This template is out-dated. It forces the user to search for the Gallica scan in the old Gallica library (visualiseur.bnf.fr), whereas Gallica offers a more practical service: the gallica.bnf.fr ebook-based system, which directly provides the user with a permalink. The template should be adaptated so as to allow users to specify either the first or the second system when editing the template:

Also, if someone would mind changing the skin of this template... (removing the ugly blue-dotted gray field usually used for displaying pre-formatted text with <pre> tag.) Best regards, Tachymètre (talk) 14:36, 11 May 2010 (UTC)

Agree with Tachymètre. Please update the template so that a direct link to the pages can be provided. Badzil (talk) 08:27, 30 July 2010 (UTC)
I think that currently the best way is {{ARK-BNF}}. --Nemo 08:31, 3 August 2010 (UTC)

We reviewed all BnF/Gallica related templates when working on the BnF cooperation project. Our thoughts were that this template was a very bad idea, because it mixes two unrelated things : source and license. Those files are PD because of {{PD-scan}}, not because they come from Gallica (this really is not a PD-guarantee, you can trust me on that). I really do not see why we mix these two things (as in truth we do have two different fields in {{Information}}).

As Nemo said, {{ARK-BNF}} is the way forward, as it makes use of the permalinks built by the BnF

In my opinion, we should deprecate this template, and use {{PD-Scan}} for License. As for Source, two solutions :

  • Using simply {{ARK-BNF}}.
  • Building a new fancy tag template, which would make use of {{ARK-BNF}} and would categorise as well.

OK. I did not know about that. Someone should update the page of the template explaining the issue and that another template has to be used. I will correct the pages where I used it. Regards. Badzil (talk) 11:36, 3 August 2010 (UTC)

License template?[edit]

I do not think this template should be used as a license template. It is like cross of {{PD-scan}} and source template: it says that it is a scan of PD work so scanning did not add additional copyrights, but it does not say why the image is PD in the first place. I think it should be used with templates like {{PD-old-100-1923}}. --Jarekt (talk) 13:20, 29 July 2013 (UTC)

Agree. Moreover, it has been shown that non-PD files can be found on Gallica from times to times, which kinda void this template. I have been meaning to deprecate it for years now but never got to do it. Jean-Fred (talk) 14:30, 29 July 2013 (UTC)
May be we can create GallicaScan source template {{GallicaScan}} and replace "{{PD-GallicaScan|id}}" with "{{GallicaScan|id}}{{PD-scan|PD-old-1923}}" or "{{GallicaScan|id}}{{PD-scan|PD-old-100-1923}}" when we can figure out author's death date. --Jarekt (talk) 16:09, 29 July 2013 (UTC)
> ... when we can figure out author's death date ...
And don't forget to enable PD-status for images only due to creation-year (although authors death date is unknown)
e.g. an image from 1800 today should always be PD

Wouldn't it be usefull to insert a waiver in the template, explaining that reuse for commercial purpose is subject to fees ? Wathever in the public domain, Gallica requires paiement of fees for such an use, according french law see Article 15, as stated in the commercial use licence page.
