Pantasa is a tool for integrating bibliographic information into UVLe. It uses the zotero citation management software to fetch citation data from a bibliographic database. On the UVLe side, Pantasa (from "pantas" - "wise" + "tasa" - meaning "to sharpen" or "to assess") deploys a special filter that detects bibliographic information coming from zotero.

How to use Pantasa on UVLe

You need to install zotero plugin on your web browser. The easiest way to get bibliographic metadata into an UVLe page is to drag and drop a citation from the Zotero citation management software into the UVLe page editor. Download zotero plugin here.

How Pantasa Works

Warning: Geekspeak follows!

On the UVLe back-end, Pantasa deploys a filter that automatically links from citations to the full-text of articles online, using the OpenURL mechanism. One of the easiest ways to get metadata into an UVLe page is to drag and drop a citation from the zotero citation management software (see above). Zotero has to be configured to 'Copy as HTML' in the 'Quick Copy' setting, this will include an OpenURL data and formatted reference when you drag and drop into an HTML editor.

Based on the COinS plugin, Pantasa adds structured data for a reference (e.g. title, author, publication details) in an HTML span element. This data can then be used to create a link to an online version of the book or article, if available.





To Do

  • build Pantasa's own bibliographic database that focuses on local authors
  • provide a choice for users to fetch local database
