announced Monday the release of
NoteWorthy Virtual Notecards, a database platform in which writers can store, organize and retrieve their notes, quotes and bibliographic references.
NoteWorthy is a Macintosh-only desktop application that allows researchers to store and organize notes on their computers much as they do with 3×5-inch index cards, only with the added power of searching and sorting. Developed in
4th Dimension, it allows users to store millions of fully-formatted notes and quotes up to hundreds of pages in length, along with keywords and links to bibliographic information. Existing electronic bibliographies can be imported from bibliographic programs such as EndNote and ProCite and integrated with a NoteWorthy database.
Information can be cut and pasted with other programs and from the Web, and entries can be hot-linked to Web locations.
NoteWorthy for Mac requires a PowerPC Mac running System 8.5 or later. A Windows edition is expected later in the Spring of 2001, allowing exchanging of data between the Mac and Windows versions.
NoteWorthy sells for US $89 from the IntelliGents Web site and can be downloaded for a free 45-day trial before purchase.
