This template provides a simple way to add book citations to BSCWiki articles.
We encourage you to use citations when you add facts to the wiki that are included in only one book, or only a few books. The citation will tell other BSCWiki users what book that information is found in.
The citation indicates that this information is in book #87; the user can click on the floating "87" to go to the article about that book. (Since most books don't have articles yet, many of these links won't work for now. But you can add the citation now and it will work later, when the book has an article.)
You do not need to cite information that appears throughout the series (for example, that most of the BSC attends Stoneybrook Middle School).
How to use the template
Simply copy the code below:
And replace NUMBER with the number of the book. For example, to cite a fact or event found in book #10, Logan Likes Mary Anne, you would write:
This would appear as: 10
(To make the | symbol on most American keyboards, hit shift + the backslash key.)
Then place the code after the sentence that has the information you're citing:
Numbers for books outside the original BSC series
The numbering system for books uses the same system as the Complete Guide. This system is outlined below:
|Book or series||Number or abbreviation||Example citation||How it appears|
|Baby-sitters Little Sister||LS#||
|Logan Bruno, Boy Baby-sitter||LB||
|Mary Anne's Book||MAB||
|The Baby-sitters Club Chain Letter||CL||
|The Baby-sitters Club Secret Santa||SecS||
