This is one of a series of articles which describes a template that will allow for consistent and easy article creation on Folgerpedia.

Help others jumpstart their research by contributing personal finding aids or lists of collection materials that would be of interest to the rest of the community. Title your article with the research topic (person, place, or subject) that is the focus of your finding aid. Click the "piece of paper" symbol in the upper right corner of your page and select "Edit Source." In this editing mode, copy the code below the line (<hr/>) into the "creating" page to get a head-start on creating an article for a finding aid on a specific person or topic. You probably won't need all the sections listed below, they are simply suggestions. The category:Research is necessary for all Finding Aid articles, but other designators can be used as applicable, such as "Bibliography" when the finding aid includes a number of secondary works.

You can save a DRAFT of your article by putting {{draft}} as the first word in the article.

Examples:

Augustin Daly

Samuel Hieronymus Grimm

John Lydgate


Short paragraph explaining of the subject of the list

The Folger's holdings of X

The list, broken up by whatever major divisions make sense (format, volume, topic, etc).
