Literature

The Literature module contains literature references for your project. If there are already references in your project you can see an A-Z bar along the top of the page listing the first letters of available references and authors. Click on a letter to open a list with the references or authors starting with that letter. Or find a reference by typing in the "Search by title" or "Search by author" box. You can jump to a reference by clicking on its name in the list. This opens the editing page of the reference.
At the bottom of the page you can jump to the options "new reference", "bulk upload & matching" or "publication types".

Before applying for your own site you can experiment with all the available functions of this module in the LNG Sandboxes: http://linnaeus.naturalis.nl/wiki/Sandboxes

Edit reference

On this page you can edit or delete a reference.
At the bottom of the page you can examine which taxa, persons, organisations or traits are linked to this reference by clicking on "Linked taxa", "Linked names" or "Linked traits". If there are no links yet, you see stated "no links". To link taxa click "add" behind 'link to taxa'. You can't remove links from here. To remove taxon links go to the Taxon editor module. For other links, go to the module involved.
When you made changes click "save" before leaving the page. To remove a reference click "delete reference".

New reference

On this page you can add a new reference to the project. You can add a new verbatim author. When you click "add author" next to "author(s)" you can choose an author from a list. Here you can only link authors already present in the Actor module. When you want to add a new author this way, go to the Actor module and add the new name there first.
At the bottom of the page of the newly added reference you see stated "(no links)". To link taxa click "add" behind 'link to taxa'. For other links, go to the module involved.
After editing click "save" before leaving the page.

Bulk upload (matching)

On this page you can upload raw reference data in bulk. TAB separated, like copy/pasted excel cells. Be sure to use legal publication types (use the system labels, not the translations):
Artikel
Boek
Boek (deel)
Database
Hoofdstuk
Literatuur
Manuscript
Persbericht
Persoonlijke mededeling
Rapport
Serie
Tijdschrift
Website

First prepare an excel file, one line for each reference. Copy the lines with references you want to upload and paste them in the text-box. When you copy-pasted the header line also check "first line has titles". Click "parse".
You now see the data from your spreadsheet presented in a series of columns. Per column you can specify to which field you want to map the data for that column. Default "ignore" is set. Choose author and title columns to try match (date/year is not required, but might help).
When you want to remove a column from the import click "remove column" on top of it.

Publication types

On this page you can add new publication types or edit the translations of existing ones. After editing click "save" before leaving the page.
