I don't believe this has been added as its own entry into Bugzilla yet or not; I'll add it here, and add it as a dependency of Bug 2757. 

The Reading Tools need to be refactored into the plugin infrastructure. Some notes: 

-- there should be a new plugin class, called "Reading Tools Plugins", within which new plugins should be grouped. 

-- all topmost Reading Tools should be individual plugins; for example, the "How to Cite Item" link and backend code would become an individual plugin, with code kept in plugings/readingTools/citeItem/. 

-- I'm not particularly clear how the Related Items section should work. Should this be its own plugin, or should each set (eg. Agriculture) become its own plugin?

-- does this make Bug 1433 obsolete?
