Along with the explosive growth of the Web has come a great increase in on-line scholarly literature, which is often more current than what appears in printed publications. The increasing proportion of on-line scholarly literature makes it possible to implement functionality desirable to all researchers — the ability to access cited documents immediately from the citing paper. Implementing this direct access is called “reference linking”. The Cornell Digital Library Research Group employs value-added surrogates as a generalizable mechanism for providing reference-linking behavior in Web documents. This mechanism exposes reference linking data through a well-defined API, permitting the construction of reference linking services by external clients. We present two example reference linking applications buildable on this API. We also introduce a performance metric; currently we are (automatically) extracting reference linking information with more than 80% accuracy.
