BibServer screencast and user perspective

BibServer software allows people (you, me, the person in the office down the road) to hold and share collections of searchable data. Be it the list of books you have to read for your course this semester, the publications you produced in your research, the database of all staff at your organisation or your neatly categorised weekly shop (‘aisle 7: toothpaste, but only if BOGOF’), BibServer allows you to view, search, share and maintain this information.

If, like me, you are not of a technical bent, do not despair – Mark has created a straightforward video guide on how to use it and how it’s useful:

Mark Williamson, a post-doctoral researcher at Cambridge University, was introduced to BibServer and we filmed him talking about using it a (very) short while later:

Thanks to Peter for his camera and video-production skills, and of course his blog.
