13.4. Bibliography database management tools

As BibTeX databases are plain text files, they can be generated and manipulated with any editor that is able to write ASCII files. However, with large collections of BibTeX entries, this method can get quite cumbersome and finding information becomes more and more difficult. For this reason people started to develop tools to help with these tasks. Many of them can be found at http://www.tug.org/tex-archive/biblio/bibtex/utils/.

A selection of such tools is described in this section. They range from command-line tools for specific tasks to programs with a graphical user interface for general database maintenance. New products of both types are emerging, so it is probably worthwhile to check out available Internet resources (e.g., http://bibliographic.openoffice.org/biblio-sw.html).
