Subject: Bibliographic software


I am wondering if there exists out there somewhere a bibliographic
package to simplify the writing of manuscripts. The ideal package
exists -- Nota Bene's bibliographic package -- but unfortunately it
works (so far as I know) only with Nota Bene, and I've grown too
accustomed to Word Perfect to switch.

What I'm looking for would be a memory resident package which would pop
up over Word Perfect, asking me questions about the bibliographic item
or giving me a form to fill out. Then the software would create a
footnote, formatted in the proper style; at some later point, it would
also create a bibliography with everything nicely sorted, formatted,

The power of the NB bibliographic package is so great I'm tempted to
switch, but I thought I'd make sure there wasn't something out there
that would give me the benefits of NB bibliographic without having to
learn (choke) yet another word processor. (So far : Electric Pencil,
TPU, Emacs, FinalWord, Word- Star, now Word Perfect.)

Thanks ...

Ditto Howard Aldrich's request for any updates on e-mail contacts with
Warsaw. I suspect this will be a busy link as there are many of us with
colleagues there and much the scholars in Poland have to share. Make
efforts to inform them of HUMANIST. Anna Wyka, Andrezj Scinski of the
Polish Academy of Sciences, Institute of Philosophy and Sociology are
vitally concerned about such communication possibilities. Thank you.

Stephen Miller asked about a music publishing package called SCORE from
'Passport Designs' (Calif. USA). I don't know if the company has an
email address, but a colleague at the Open University suggests
contacting the British users group. This is currently being set up and
can be contacted at:

42 Burlington Road
New Malden
Tel: 081 949 4745

(For all I know this may also be an email-free zone.)

Their inaugural meeting will be in London on 14 May.
