Some time back Greg Restall posted an interesting question about trying to organise academic papers in format akin to iTunes. Certainly programmes like EndNote can handle that in a typically bibliographical way. EndNote is powerful, oriented towards academic work and the ability to create and format references within a Word document is very handy. However, it is a tiresome interface that just plain lacks panache.

Well interestingly enough, you can manage .pdf files in iTunes itself. Just drag them in and then use a smartplaylist to organise them. Quite nice, but a little confusing.

One programme I have been exploring is Delicious Library. I like that it has a very OSX style interface, that you can enter details easily (or better yet using iSight or a bluetooth barcode scanner) and that it organises all your media collectables, not just books. Still in early days with the programme, but it seems to have lots of potential.
