Definition

Disambiguation in Wikipedia is the process of resolving the conflicts that arise when a single term is ambiguous—when it refers to more than one topic covered by Wikipedia articles.

Can you think of any topics that may need disambiguating?

article name
Article name
  • May need a disambiguating term
    • E.g. Mercury (planet)
    • Or Mercury, Nevada
  • Is there a primary topic?
  • A meaning that is much more likely to be used
    • It would not have a disambiguator: Mercury
  • But in this case, there is no primary topic
  • So Mercury is a disambiguation page
primary topic
Primary topic
  • If there is a primary topic, it goes at the base name, e.g. London
  • Other articles are listed in a disambiguation page, e.g. London (disambiguation)
  • The primary page will have a hatnote linking to the disambiguation page

For other uses, see London (disambiguation).

How would you disambiguate the articles on the handout?

  • All linked through disambiguation page?
  • One primary topic, others under dab page?
  • One primary topic, one other through hatnote?
  • None needed?
  • Something else?
