Bibliography Database Software

Does everyone just use Endnote nowadays?

I have an old version of Procite (on floppies, how quaint!) that I've been using, but the feature that allows me to just import stuff from my library database doesn't seem functional. And I sure would like that (data entry isn't the best way to spend my time). And I don't think Procite is even really getting support or development anymore?

Anyone in the know?

If you're looking for alternatives, I use RefWorks ( It imports data directly from most databases and everything is stored online so that you can access it from any computer. Here at the University of Wisconsin we have an institutional license so it is free, otherwise it does have a subscription fee. However, it is a little buggy - I wouldn't recommend it to anyone that can't get it for free. That's my $0.02, for what it's worth.

Looks promising, but that $100 a year certainly puts me off... Steep for us student types...

Thanks David.
