Currently, when editors reference different parts of the same book, they have to repeat all the information about the book. This is cumbersome, lengthens wiki text, and it also obscures the fact that many references actually come from the same volume.
- A proposol has been put up in T151301: Implement "extends"-attribute for ref-tag , as part of T100645: Efficient way to refer to different pages of the same work when adding references to an article (#17). The idea is to create a new tag that can be used to extend a reference. E.g. The reference "A book, an author, a publisher, an ISBN" could be extended with "page 13"
