How to enter publications into Drupal's Biblio via DOI

This entry is a guide to entering a publication into Drupal's Biblio module. Note that most Administrative information for the bibliography can be found here at Administer > Site Configuration > Biblio Settings (URL: admin/settings/biblio)

1) Login:
- go to http://blah.umich.edu/alpha/login
- You can change your password and find other information at the "My Account" link

2) Set up DOI import for the bibliography:
- Create Content > Biblio > DOI Lookup
- Click on "You need to register with CrossRef" and complete following page

3) Synchronize your CrossRef information
- Go to My Account > Edit > Biblio Settings > CrossRef Login Information
- Add your email (e.g., kkwaiser@umich.edu) to the Account ID box
- Save

3) Import an publication via a DOI:
- Create Content > Biblio > DOI Lookup
- Enter this DOI: 10.1672/08-41.1 > Click Populate using DOI

4) QA/QC the new publication:
- Authors: Make sure the pre-existing authors have correct name (via auto-complete)
- Person References: These should be the same as the authors. If the name doesn't autocomplete, enter the name and a "person" of that name will be created
- Abstract: Did it import?
- Notes: Anything important to add?
- Custom 1: If UMBS has a hardcopy on file enter the following: Archived copy available at the University of Michigan Biological Station
- Custom 2: Field for research sites associated with this publication. For example: Lake Michigan/Lake Huron/Lake Superior
- Research Site Reference: Should be the same information as Custom 2. If the site doesn't exist it will be created and you may want to go edit the site characteristics (such as location!)
- Custom 3: A list of associated habitats. For example: Northern Hardwoods/Swamp-Hardwood-Conifer
- Keywords: This is an auto-complete field. Please use existing terms wherever possible although it is possible to create new terms if needed.

5) Save or Preview the entry.
