Description dnwilson 2005-05-11 02:56:11 UTC
It would be useful if bibliographic references and their data fields were accessible in the Cross-reference tool. The proposal is to add documentâ€™s Bibliographic entries as a new reference type into the Cross-reference â€˜Referencesâ€™ tab. When the proposed â€˜Bibliographic Entriesâ€™ reference type was selected the Selection panel would show the bibliographic entries in the document by listing the Identifier (Short name). When a particular record was selected, the Format panel would show the all fields of the bibliographic record, together with the current sequence number of the citation â€“ that is the number that is shown when numbered citations as listed. This would allow the user select any of the bibliographic elements from the bibliographic record and display them in the text. It might seem a bit trivial to build this use this just so we can display the bookâ€™s Publisherâ€™s name in the text, but we could be dealing with more significant entries such as Abstracts and Notes. See the attached panel design
