||In this paper, the METAREF project is presented. It consists

based on the HTTP protocol. Thus, the application runs like a web service
and any web browser can act as user interface. The project is also
concerned about the students’ learning process. In this sense, the passive
role that students take, relying only on their notes for passing their exams,
is analysed, and how METAREF can help them, by encouraging them to
take a more active role, consulting and commenting on the references the
