Has any Library hacker compared some of the pdf management sites, like Papers (for Mac) or Yep, or discussed how established programs manage pdf searches, etc (Google desktop search, zotero, Endnote)?
See Judson’s NYT article today on zotero and papers.
Actually, I’d really love a systematic comparison of bibliographic programs (online, desktop, both) and of programs that organize pdfs or a range of “objects”. Anything to promote seamlessness, easy mirroring among computers, easy searchability.
And anything that could improve Duke webmail would be terrific! (What a wretched search function!).
Thanks for your comments. Dr. Judson’s article was interesting http://judson.blogs.nytimes.com/2008/12/16/defeating-bedlam/ and I’m sure many people have experienced similar frustrations.
We haven’t done any head-to-head comparison (although we have some helpful comments that compare), but we have written posts on Zotero, Zotero Pt. 2, CiteULike, and Connotea and a brief post on EndNote and Refworks.
