page-descriptor A descriptor of the numbered "pages", e.g., plate for an atlas that has numbered plates instead of pages.
page-descriptor-plural The plural version of page-descriptor, e.g., plates.
page A specific page or page range being cited. Normally this should not be provided for the source itself (i.e., in the "Source" namespace), but rather passed as an argument when the source is cited on a page. When providing a value for page, if the cited pages are not actually numbered, surround the value with square brackets: [...]. (See {{page}}.)
is-subref Set this parameter to true when citing this book inside the definition of another source in the "Source" namespace. This changes some punctuation and suppresses the categorization of the source in Category:Book sources.
source-name The page name of this source (in the "Source" namespace). This is used to provide a link to the source page.
