Reference Keeper - A Personal Bibliographic & Research Assistant

Screenshot|Developers


RefKeep is a software targetted at teachers, students and researchers - people who read and manage a large number of books, journals, magazines and papers regularly. Often, we have difficulty in recalling information. We know that we have read the necessary information somewhere some time ago; but we are unable to locate it efficiently, when it is needed the most. This leads to frustration and lost productivity. RefKeep attempts to alleviate these problems through a tool to manage one's research and other bibliographic information.

RefKeep was started as a student project at the Indian Institute of Technology, Madras. Around 20,000 lines of code have already been written and we have a working version. Screenshots will be available at http://dilu.tripod.com/refkeep.

RefKeep is completely developed in Java, making it platform independent. The User Interfaces are built using Java Swing. All data is stored in XML format.
