Free Bibliographic Software

I use Endnote to handle all my thesis references and bibliographic data – in fact I’m note sure how I’d live without it as an academic writer. But it does cost a reasonable amount (unless you’re covered by a site licence like at a university where it’s normally available for students and staff for a minimal fee while at the institution).

In today’s TidBITS newletter I see that Research Software Design, makers of PAPYRUS are offering for free their bibliographic and notes software that runs under MacOS 7+ (Classic for OSX) and for DOS/Windows. So if you’re running an older system and doing academic writing have a look and see if it helps.
