Plone for Education: Bibliographies

John Cleese Room

Talk details

Language: English
Level: Basic

Websites targeted at academic audiences can serve a variety of purposes, but no matter what the discipline, bibliographic references are a common theme. Plone has supported online bibliographies for many years, the CMFBibliographyAT add-on supports a number of different export and import formats and 16 different reference types. However Plone's current bibliography toolkit is limited in the ways that references can be styled and used in citations.

CSL - citation style language - defines an XML syntax for defining bibliographic styling, which is used by many systems including add-ons for Drupal and Wordpress. In this talk I will explore how Plone can produce formatted bibliographies and citations by using the formatting instructions provided by CSL styles in conjunction with the bibliography content types.
