Reference Manager Web Publisher

Publish your reference collection on the Web or an intranet.

  • show/hide specific fields (e.g., notes, linked and custom fields)
  • title bar page names
  • published library descriptions
  • “About” page text
  • custom logo (200 x 125 gif or jpg)
  • external Web site link (shown in page footers)
  • authentication with a User Name and Password (applies to all users)

When working with many data points, graphing is often the quickest way to qualify data and identify trends. With the Origin statistics gadget, it’s also easy to pull quantitative information, such as mean and standard deviation, straight from a data plot. This lets me make better decisions about which data to select for more detailed analysis.
