This database will record your bibliography entries and any notes you have, and allow you to group them by project. Entries that are used in more than one project need only be entered once. The database will then format the entries into BibTex compatible files, and provide other handy references such as a short index of citiation names or a LaTeX format summary of notes. Operation of the database is intended to be as self evident as possible.
To start, you must name at least one project, by typing that name at the next blank line on the Main Menu. To each project, add entries for your bibliographic items. Data entry fields appear and disappear according to the bibliographic entry type chosen. Starred fields are usually required for BibTex.
The database attempts to choose a LaTeX citation reference for you, but when the same author(s) occur in the same year, you will have to manually eliminate duplicate references. Also, you must manually encode special characters (% ~ $) within your entries. The database performs some very basic testing for bad characters in the BibTex output, but this test is not robust.
You may email questions to firstname.lastname@example.org, but remember this is an unpaid effort!
