Sharing Searchable Scholarly Bibliographies on the Web

ISI Web of Knowledge, the producers of EndNote among other citation management software, now offers a free web version of EndNote which researchers can use to collect their citations and share their bibliographies with others. I have just uploaded a bibliography of scholarship in Buddhist-Christian dialogue which I have named BCSD. To search it:
  1. Sign up for an EndNote Web account at http://www.myendnoteweb.com.
  2. Send your e-mail address to me at barciaus@bc.edu.
  3. After I have sent you a confirmation, go to http://myendnoteweb.com and sign into your account.
  4. Click on BCSD under Groups Shared by Others on the left hand side. You will see the beginning of the bibliography.
  5. Do a trial search. In the Quick Search box, type "earth" (without quotation marks). Then select BCSD in the pull-down menu below it. Click on Search.
  6. Click on the Title to see the full citation. NOTE: Clicking on Author will not bring up the author's other works in the bibliography. This is something that needs to be corrected by ISI. It is posssible to find the author's other works by using the Quick Search feature.
  7. If you are a member of the Boston College community, click on FindIt to see where you might locate the item being cited.
Please use the Comments feature on this blog to give your feedback on this resource.

Interested in why you are doing it this way -- is there a need to restrict users to the database via e-mail and password. Why not create the database on endnote web and periodically update it to or publish it on citeulike?

You could also make a Mendeley public group of the collection and share it openly online.

The Nike Air Max 1(aka Nike Air Max or Nike Air Max 87 was released in a variety of colors and fabric combinations which have given it a contempory flavor.The first retro of the Air Max 1 came in 1992. Nike used the soles of the Air Max 90 to save money on production of this shoe. Due to the mismatch of the upper to sole, this version has been in high demand to find. All of the retros in 1992 were leather, but Nike went back to its roots when it brought our the Nike Air Max 1 again in nylon versions in 1995.
The Nike Air Max 1 has been released in more colors than any one collector has possessed.The Nike Air Max 1 is commonly used for limited releases such as for the opening of the store Atmos, Kid Robot, and there was a special one made for an Amsterdam only release.
