OCLC has added COinS to its Open WorldCat Web pages. COinS, or Context Objects in Spans, is a standardized way to invisibly embed bibliographic metadata into a Web page's HTML, using the OpenURL metadata. This allows other tools, such as Web browsers, to identify citation metadata in Web content and automatically generate links to appropriate resources in a user's own library.COinS
