Another to-do is to get a decent academic references database sorted out, since I’m going to be doing a lot more papers and bids in the immediate future.
Years ago I had a system that worked beautifully and Got It Right (BibTeX) … but that doesn’t play well if you’re not writing La/TeX documents. EndNote with Word plug-in was the only game after that and was so appallingly annoying that it’s easier and quicker (IMO) to do it all by hand.
But I think I need something better now, and the field has changed profoundly. So – I’m in the market for a new system. Planning to explore RefWorks, Zotero, CiteULike, Connotea, HotReference, and anything else I can find quickly. RefWorks gains a lot of points out of the gate for being supported by the OU Library, with handy linkages from their search results pages.
Any other suggestions? Recommendations?
