Bookmarking Copac records

In a previous post, “Persistent identifiers for Copac records“, I said that we would soon be adding links from our Full record pages to bookmarking sites such as Delicious. Well, we have now added the links to Delicious!

We hope you find this functionality useful. Let us know if you think there are other such sites you think we should be linking to.

Persistent identifiers for Copac records

If you know the record number of a Copac record, there is now a simple url that will return you the record in MODS XML format. The urls take the following form: http://copac.ac.uk/crn/<record-number>. For instance, the work “China tide : the revealing story of the Hong Kong exodus to Canada” has a Copac Record Number of 72008715609 and can be linked to with the url http://copac.ac.uk/crn/72008715609.

Over the next few weeks we’ll be looking at adding these links to the Copac Full record pages and also introducing links to Bookmarking web sites such as delicio.us.
