Bookends  version 10.5
The reference manager Mac users have been waiting for

Reference management entails the collection, annotation, and citation of published information. Bookends greatly simplifies these tasks. Bookends can perform Internet searches to retrieve references and associated pdfs or web pages, or immediately find and import references for which you already have the pdf. Versatile groups (static, smart, and virtual), reference cross-linking (links), multiple notecards per reference, and near-instantaneous live searches help organize and find information in your personal collection. Highly configurable displays let you view the reference information and attachments the way you want. Scan your word processor manuscripts to create publication-ready documents complete with bibliographies and footnotes. And much more. Compatible with
Word 2004/2008, Mellel, Apple Pages '08 and ‘09, Nisus Writer, and OpenOffice 3. Here’s what’s new in this version.
