In general, follow Wikipedia's Manual of Style when creating articles. Here are some guidelines:

  • Use sentence case for article titles (also serves as first line of article)
  • Begin with a sentence or two summarizing the topic (the "Lead section")
  • Use level 2 headings for subsections within the article (four or more level 2 headings automatically create a table of contents)
  • Use level 3 headings for subsections that will not display in a table of contents
  • Remember that your article is about the named topic as it relates to the Folger and the Folger collection
