The URL field is always displayed as a hyperlink labelled "paper", which comes across as confusing, to me, when viewing a reference for say, a book or book chapter, or anything else (e.g., something that would go in the "misc" item type, such as legal documents or tax forms, of which I have many in one of my libraries).
This also often confuses others browsing my library because there is also "link" when browsing the library page itself, which is a link to a separate BibBase page for that reference, and it's not clear that "paper" is the url field while "link" is not.
Is there a better, more general, term to label this hyperlink? There are three options I see:
2) "link" -- I think this is the most intuitive label, but this would require changing the current "link" to something else to differentiate it. Perhaps you could change the current "link" to be labelled as "reference link", or "link to reference", or "BibBase link", or "citation link"? I'm not sure. I think "BibBase link" (or "bibbase link" to go with the rest of the lowercasing) is the clearest, but these are all the examples I could think of that may be clear.
3) "URL" but also change the current "link" label as described in (2) to make the difference between "link" and "URL" more intuitive, as these still would sound similar.
Thank you for all your work on BibBase!
