Feature of the Week: BibSonomy Plugin for Google Docs

During a project in Web Technologies at the Leibniz University of Hannover we developed a plugin for Google Docs, which connects to BibSonomy to access the user's bookmarked publications and helps inserting them with a single press of a button:

We added a search mechanism to provide a simple way of searching for specific documents in bigger collections. The plugin has an easy-to-use user interface, which is embedded as a sidebar in the Google Docs interface. The login into BibSonomy uses the username and the API-Key of the BibSonomy account to access the bookmarks. After the first login your information is saved into the document, so you have to provide your user information only once.

You can read more about the plugin and get the source code on Bitbucket or you can try it yourself in this example Google Doc.

Happy writing!
