Classical Works Knowledge Base / Resolution Service

The Classical Works Knowledge Base (CWKB) is also a resolution service accepting canonical citation OpenURLs and directing users to citations available from full-text services. The canonical citation OpenURLs use the KEV Metadata Format for Canonical Citations registered with the OpenURL Maintenance Agency. L'Année philologique (annee-philologique.com) uses the service. CWKB-based citation linking software is licensed under the Educational Community License, Version 2.0.

Guide to implement OpenURLs for canonical citations of Classical texts

The canonical citation metadata (keys) described below are used by cwkb:

All these keys are optional, but rft.au and rft.work OR rft.workid must be provided for the identification of a work. For anonymous works, use the title of the work both in rft.au and rft.title.

Example:

To link to Cic., Brut. 150, the following OpenURL link could be sent to the cwkb resolution service:

http://cwkb.org/resolver?ctx_ver=Z39.88-2004&rft_val_fmt=info:ofi/fmt:kev:mtx:canonical_cit&rft.au=Cic.&rft.title=Brut.&rft.slevel1=150

You can get the OpenURL link for a citation by using our search service.

If you need help to implement canonical citation OpenURLs, you can contact Eric Rebillard (er97@cornell.edu).
