Technical Information of Scholar's Aid

Scholar's Aid 4 AE is a program package that includes a bibliographical data manager called Library, an importing/exporting manager called DataRetriever, and a notes/information manager called Notes. The three programs are tightly integrated using OLE Automation technology, thereby enabling you to achieve levels of flexibility and control over your data that no other comparable program can match.
This structure allows new modules to be added without any major restructuring -- highly expandable.

Library (with Data Retriever)

Editing: The Scholar's Aid 4 AE version of the Library module has many improvements both in user interface and functionality. Users now can change shortcuts for toolbar buttons and main menu items. Changing font properties in the record editing window is very easy.

Also, Library can import data from EndNote(R) exported text file.
