Converts bibliograpic citations (embeded in Context Object in spans - http://oCOinS.info) to OpenURL links.
Some web pages (e.g. the References section of Wikipedia pages) contain bibliographic information encoded into hidden HTML elements according to the library community specification Context Objects in Span (COinS) - see http://ocoins.info
This extension transforms all COinS found on a page to links based on the OpenURL standard (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/OpenURL) that point to the worldcat.org gateway (or to other Link server).
This extension would help library users giving them access to the full text of articles referenced on web pages with COinS .
v. 0.5 - Manifest-file changed to version 2, new icons
v. 0.3.x - Added option for selecting an icon for the resolver link anchor. Changed the handling of COinS with additional content - it is replaced only if it is not a link.
v. 0.2.x - Added Options page. It enables users to configure the base URL for the Link Resolver to servers other than the WorldCat gateway. - To find the Options page: after installing the extension - 1) type chrome://extensions/ in your address bar (or click the wrench icon, then Tools, then Extensions) 2) Find the extension entry in the list of extensions, click on Options
There are 3 "Custom.." input boxes on the page. One can enter additional Link Resolver URL-s there. Make sure to click the radio button next to the Resolver URL you wish to be used from the extension. (The radio buttons are disabled if the corresponding URL box is empty)
