Open Office Bibliography Project

November 24, 2006

Friday morning is a good time to get the warm fuzzies. And the Open Office Bibliography project (via) gives me the warm fuzzies for sure. Some highlights: –

  • “… greatly improved Graphic User Interface for entering, editing and searching for bibliographic records”
  • MODS, RDF, SRU/W
  • “The ability to support all the common styles and conventions for citations and reference tables”
  • “When will this wonderful facility be available ? Bibliographic enhancements are expected to be included in OpenOffice in 2007.”

This is great news, not least because everyone with a vested interest in OS software wants to see Open Office succeed. The only way that will happen, IMO, is for it to blow Word out of the water on these kind of innovative features.
