As seen at freshmeat, gnome-list, and noted by Matt W.: "Many annoying bugfixes, a graphical configuration mechanism, and an XML-based style format for bibliographic outputs." Go to www.gnome.org/pybliographer (note new url) for more.
Ovid Statistics Log Report Generator is a perl script that produces usage reports from Ovid log statistics. See the project page for more.
as seen at gnome.org: "This version is only a minor bug-fixes release." Btw I've been using this a bit and I'm getting ready to let go of Endnote for good. Wooh-hooh... :)
bp is a freely licensed perl package for manipulating and accessing bibliographic information. It supports bibtex, refer, endnote, procite, inspec, medline and other formats for input/output/conversion. I emailed the author as the bp homepage does not seemed to have changed in two years... will post any response as a comment.
BioMail (new link) was apparently shut down by its author's department, according to the message posted at its former site. Dmitry also stated, in a message to all users, "I have yet to find a host where I can continue the BioMail alert service temporarily or permanently. If someone can help, I would be very glad. BioMail requires a Unix system with Perl, a webserver installed, and a stable internet connection (Linux computer with Apache is preferable)." Can anyone lend a few server processes to get this up and running asap? [update (3/3)]: Dmitry just let me know via email that not only has the sourceforge crew ok'd running the server there, but he also already received two messages from some of you friendly folks who saw this or got the message from oss4lib-list. Way to go, folks... :)
from gnome-list: "endnote generated bibtex files should now be readable; additional configuration topics for bibtex; minor bug fixes" ...and from the pybliographer site: "Consider this version as a 1.0pre1, so please report any problem you encounter with it." Frederic is really doing great work on this... it's got every feature I need now. Wooh-hooh!
Eric Schnell writes in that "Prospero for Windows 2000/NT/98/95 is a web-based document delivery system designed as a compliment to the Ariel software system [for ILL over the net]... [it comprises] a staff module which captures and converts Ariel files to Web accessible documents... [and a] server-side user interface which allows patrons to retrieve their documents using a web browser." It is GPLd and uses some of my code! This got a major wooh-hooh! from everyone here at Yale... or, well, at least a "why, that is quite exciting indeed."
Wally Grotophorst from GMU says: "OSCR uses Perl & MySQL to provide electronic reserves services at an academic library...." and that they are "entering their second year on the product." Download it yourself at timesync.gmu.edu/OSCR, it is under the GPL.
