OpenURL ContextObject in SPAN (COinS) Use with LibX (Firefox extension that provides direct access to your library's resources).

To embed citation metadata into html in such a way that processing agents can discover, process and make use of the metadata. Since an important use of this metadata will be to allow processing agents to make OpenURL hyperlinks for users in libraries (latent OpenURL), the method must allow the metadata to be placed any where in HTML that a link might appear. In the absence of some metadata-aware agent, the embedded metadata must be invisible to the user and innocuous with respect to HTML markup. To meet these requirements, the span element was selected. The NISO OpenURL ContextObject is selected as the specific metadata package. The resulting specification is named "ContextObject in SPAN" or COinS for short. A COinS Generator site is available - See : COinS Processors Alf Eaton's Greasemonkey script for processing COinSVirginia Tech's

Operator demonstrates the usefulness of semantic information on the Web, in real world scenarios.Here are some examples of things you can do with this release of Operator, and with the Web as it exists today : Yahoo! Local and Your Address Book. With Operator you can send the phone number of your favorite pizza place from Yahoo! Local to your address book, without having to type anything..... Operator requires information on the Web to be encoded using microformats, and since this method for semantically encoding information is relatively new, not all sites are using microformats yet. However, Operator works great with any blog that uses rel-tag, and the sites Yahoo! Local, Flickr, and, all of which contain millions of pieces of information expressed using microformats. As more sites begin to semantically encode data with microformats, Operator will automatically work with them as well.
