Abstract: On November 26, 1997, Research Information Systems released its newest version of the ProCite bibliographic management software. The most notable change to the program is the retooling for compatibility with Windows 95 and NT. In addition to the Windows 95 upgrade, Pro cute added two new workforms. These forms allow users to capture information about Web pages and e-mail messages. This latest release of ProCite builds on the Cite While You Write feature that allows users to link citations in a single manuscript to records in multiple databases. The program simplifies the generation of bibliographies and endnotes while allowing users to create bibliographic databases using twenty-eight distinct workforms. Workhorse cover a wide range of materials commonly used by librarians, from audiovisual materials to patents. While there are a few idiosyncrasies users should be aware of, this product is a solid addition to the librarian''s toolkit and should be considered by those libraries that have a need for a small but powerful program to catalog resources and create bibliographies.
