well, if you have boundless time and energy, you could just allow people 
to submit the links to you and then you normalize and post them!

(Is it essential that they *are* normalized? Also, by the way, your 
website says the data is (semi)freely copyable, under CC BY-NC-SA, but I 
didn't notice any way to access the database data directly (although 
searching with no constraints, it seems, shows everything in a rendered 

Is there related bibliographic-website work on the Web? Somehow my 
intuition suggests that it ought to be a fairly easy solved problem 
that's not helped by a software/database being specific to (in this 
case) functional programming topics (a slightly fuzzy category);
