If you are a student, teacher, writer, or anyone who has a need for a bibligraphy then you need to do yourself a favor and make use of a bibliographic manager. A bibliographic manager will organize, query, share, insert, and import bibliographic databases. One tool for this is Bibus. Bibus is an open source bibliographic database that can work in conjunction with OpenOffice as well as import PubMed, EndNote/Refer, RIS, and BibTex records. Bibus uses SQLite-database for storage so there is no worry about database setup or management.
Bibus is free, easy to use, cross platform (Linux and Windows) and allows you to create customized styles for for bibliographies. In this tutorial you will learn how to install and use Bibus (with a nod to OpenOffice).
