Online Bibliography Tool

I'm looking for a relatively straight-forward pre-fab bibliography database. I'd be happiest if it was hosted on my server, if it was php/mysql or something else I could understand, and if it was free. It would be great if it exported to something like html or pdf. In MLA format.

Basically, I'm tired of not being able to enter records into something like ProCite unless I have my main computer next to me.

Any suggestions?

This isn't really what you're looking for, but check out CiteULike.

oh i've wanted one of these for a long time.... then... i decided i didn't really want that and what i really wanted was a wiki. one with searching and such.... i use bookends on osx to format the bibliographies and such, but what i really wanted was an esternal reference of things that i've noted in the past. wikis work for that.

George - that's an interesting option, thanks. It's sorta what I'm looking for - I'll have to create a guest account and check it out.

Jeremy - I have thought about installing a wiki, just for personal use, to aid in the dissertation. While the blog is useful, a personal wiki lets me organize more by topic than by date, which I think I'd prefer as I'm moving along with the diss.

I wonder if there are any bibliography-type plugins for popular wikis.

Which wiki software program do you recommend Jeremy?

More ideas welcome!
