Editors' Review

by   / July 24, 2013

BibDesk for Mac does a good job at simplifying the process of organizing citation materials and using reference lists in other applications. The free program's interface seems rather dated but it's easy to use and navigate.

After starting, BibDesk for Mac brings up a window containing detailed information on each of its updates, which is extensive but of little use. Fortunately, this is easily dismissed in favor of the main menu. While it lacks any real graphics, the buttons are well labeled and easy to find. On the left side of the window, users can select records from the computer, itself, or the Web. A large plus button brings up a menu for entering new sources. This allows information to be added in a number of fields, including title, author, and identification number. The type of source can also be changed from a drop-down menu. Once added, the user can return to it for edits with another button. The main part of the window contains a list of the saved sources and a snapshot of their contents. Users can search the entire record for specific information, as well, which is a useful feature for those with a number of records.

Despite its dated look, BibDesk for Mac works well as a citation and source saving program. The program is easy to use and provides good assistance to users with a large number of bibliographic materials.
