Improving Biblio Productivity with Open-URL COinS


Reference search and select

 

The Open-URL Context Object (COinS) standard has been added to Biblio to make it easier to share the online data resource... e.g.  export and save selected references to a personal Zotero library collection...Yes...you will need the Zotero personal reference and citation manager (or another COinS capable system) to use this facility.

 

and....if you don't like the built-in generic bibliography format....Zotero lets you interchange between many alternate styles.

With the Zotero extension installed, you will see a yellow folder icon in the firefox browser toolbar. 
Click this icon and a popup will appear listing all the available references on the page....

 

Search biblio and select using COinS
