I. Why I love the Biblio Module

 

The Bibliography module allows you to create and maintain bibliographic lists of publications. The full (HTML) text of the publication can be included if so desired. Other files such as PDF or Word documents can be attached using the upload module.

Bibliographic entries can be imported from and exported to EndNote (versions 7,8,9,10 in XML or tagged format) and BibTex. The bibliographic lists can be formated in a number of styles including: American Psychological Association (APA), Council of Science Editors (CSE) and Institute of Electrical and Electronics Engineers (IEEE).

 

  1. Integration:
    - Drupal meets Bibtex, RefWorks, EndNote, PubMed, [and by extension Zotero]. 
    - Also integrates well with other modules (views, upload, footnotes)
     
  2. Good balance of functionality and flexibility:
    - Works well out of the box
    - Very customizable
     
  3. Good documentation and upkeep
    - Some of the best I've seen on Drupal
    - I have a feeling the project was run by a librarian
     
  4. Available in Drupal 7

Why put a bibliography on the web?

  1. Allows for collaboration among students - no more emailing biblios
  2. Integrates with taxonomy for better study organizing - now you can integrate outlines, exam questions, and citations
  3. Available everywhere and saves space
  4. Visually appealing
