Hi Tom,

please have a look at http://bibjson.org, where we have described a method
of representing biblio metadata in JSON. The basic keys are derived from
bibtex, but we refer the JSON-LD spec for inclusion of other schemas. It
would be great if you could use BibJSON for the Textus work, and we can
provide help for using BibJSON within that as well as then integrating
bibserver / facetview into your work if suitable.
