Bibus is a bibliographic database which has been developed with LibreOffice/ OpenOffice.org in mind. It can directly insert citations and format the bibliographic index in an open OpenOffice.org Writer document. The main features are
- hierarchical organization of the references with user-defined keys
- designed for multiuser-environments (share databases between users)
- a search engine supporting live queries
- on-line PubMed access
- import of PubMed (Medline), EndNote/Refer, RIS and BibTeX records. Bibus will use an SQLite-database by default for storage (via the SQLite3 module available in Python >2.5). But it also supports MySQL-databases. If you want to use a MySQL-database, make sure, that you have the python-mysqldb package installed.
