Bibliography Tool

zNote is an open source bibliography management tool.

Here is zNote, a web-based bibliography-management tool built with Zope and XML.

zNote is intended to ultimately be a replacement for tools like EndNote, ProCite, and to a certain extent, bibTeX. It uses a hierarchical XML data format which is more flexible than flat data, and it works using a set of pretty simple DOM calls to format, edit, etc.

zNote is currently at version 0.6. It is now a complete, functioning Python-classed product. It is totally usable (I have a couple of hundred entries in the one I'm using), but it has some rough edges that could be sanded off.

Like all open source projects, the more folks who contribute the fewer rough edges it will have.
