Over the past several decades, bibliographic management tools have emerged as de facto standards among the academic software toolkit. EndNote, Refworks and many others are used by researchers across the academic spectrum. But, do these tools help make things more productive and, if so, how? The session will attempt to address this and other related issues by presenting an overview of the role of bibliographic/reference management software in the scientific researcher workflow. The current landscape will be explored including case studies of leading tools and highlights of new and emerging technologies.
