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.
