I just happened across CiteULike, http://www.citeulike.org this morning and
thought it would be of interest to Humanist readers.

Operating out of Manchester University, the site offers a bookmarklet that
enables a user to find an article online and then to post it to their
'library' at the site. Not a simple bookmark but the usual citation.

The libraries of users are viewable by others and there is a 'watch'
feature that allows one to follow the citations that are being gathered by
others in related fields.

There are a number of other features that distinguish this from social
bookmark sharing sites.

Most of the present citations are to scientific and medical literature but
no technical reason by hamanists could not use the site for online articles
they find worthy of note.

I am going to be trying the site out and would be interested in what others
think about the site.

Hope you are having a great day!
