About this extension
OpenURL Referrer is a browser extension that can take certain kinds of citations on the web and convert them to direct links to one of your local library's databases. This can be accomplished thanks to OpenURL, a powerful technology that packages bibliographic information into a format that many internet services can understand. OpenURL Referrer can produce links for three different kinds of citations: OpenURL Referrer will insert OpenURLs into the results pages for Google Scholar and Google News Archive, and can also activate COinS (Contect Objects in SPANs). For more information on COinS see http://ocoins.info/.
