Bouquins is a personal-library tracking tool, via a web interface.

Behind the Lines:

To speak the truth, it is not really library-oriented but researcher-oriented. The main idea is to keep in a database a bibliography (or similar list of documents), to be able to manipulate the data easily, to generate lists in whatever format. That said, it may well be used to manage a real personal library.

Use Case:

I, the author, currently (February 2004) use it to manage the bibliography and the sources of my research about Allied Bombing of the East of France during the WWII.
I enter in the database any book, article or whatever bibliographic document I made use of in the bibliography database. When I need to generate the postscript/pdf file of my work, I (automatically) fetch with wget the LaTeX export of the database and save it as a file named bibliography.inc.tex, which one is included in my LaTeX master document with the LaTeX \include command.
As result, I get all the entries nicely formated according to the habbits established among historians.
To me, it is a way better option than writing directly my bibliography with BibTeX or LaTeX, that, in my opinion, does not fit well to store this kind of data.

Technical Side:

Code is in English but interface is in French. I have to admit that i18n was not on top of my priority list. If you think it should be :), send a mail to bouquins-dev at gna.org

How does it look like?

How to get it?

To get it, check out the CVS. Usually, I tag the CVS when I feel it is decently usable. Check the latest news to get the exact command (or browse the CVS, tags are shown there).
