Thanks, Godmar. Appreciate your response.  Between loss of Goolge Scholar and Wikipedia, feels like research methods are moving backwards.

Yes, Wikipedia turned off COinS; voice your displeasure here:

Godmar,

This is happening to us as well. Can this be resolved?  Our link resolver is not showing on Google Scholar either.

Our OpenURL image used to appear in some footnotes on Wikipedia when using the toolbar and now it does not.

Similar to google removing functionality from scholar, has Wikipedia done the same?

Thank  you.

Sincerely,
Stephen
