Jump to navigation Jump to search

Linking to the Historical Records Collection is wonderful.  Two changes would make this more helpful for users of the Wiki:

1. In front of the explanation link, put the link to the search page.

2. Put the links in places as specified by the reference consultants.

For example, the following was put at the bottom of the Wiki page for Alabama Military Records:

Wiki articles describing these collections are found at:

A more appropriate place would be on the Alabama in the Civil War Wiki page where all the other records about Alabama in the Civil War are now located.

The links would be more helpful if made something like:

An alternate method would be to have Dorothy's group create the links as shown above, then notify the consultants where the links were put, and the consultants put them where they want them.  It might be hard to explain where everything should go since there are so many places to put things.
