gPapers – A Digital Library Manager


My PyGTK skillz are improving…

Allow me to introduce gPapers, a Gnome-based Digital Library Manager. (think iTunes for all your PDF files)

If you have to ask “why?”, you’re probably not working in academia, and have never had to manage piles of journal papers. This isn’t for you. If you’re a Windows or OSX user, this isn’t for you. If you’re afraid of compiling a library or two, this isn’t for you. In fact, I believe there is a worldwide audience of perhaps seven people who will find this software useful.

But to those six others, I promise it’s a godsend. :)

This has been a side project for me for a little over a month now, and I’m ready to start collecting external feedback. So please, give it a whirl (and join the listserv).
