We have updated the bibliography pages in BHL to streamline the presentation of information about and metadata export options for content in the Library.
Previously, bibliographic details and export options were available through different tabs on title and part pages. These tabs have now been removed, and all bibliographic information is consolidated into a single display.
BHL’s metadata export options have also been relocated. BHL offers metadata exports in MODS, BibTex, and RIS formats. MODS is an XML-based bibliographic description schema used in a variety of library applications. BibTex and RIS are bibliographic citation files that are compatible with a variety of citation management tools. The MODS file is a title-level download. The BibTex and RIS files are item-level downloads.
The MODS download is available at the bottom of the title and part bibliography pages.
The BibTex and RIS downloads are available in two places:
1) Under the volume or part details on bibliography pages.
2) Under the “Download Contents” menu in the book viewer, via the “Download Citation” option.
As part of this update, we have removed the direct Mendeley import from BHL, as the generic RIS and BibTex formats are compatible with a variety of citation management softwares including Mendeley.
Details about our metadata export services are also available in the FAQ on the BHL About site.
