First and foremost, there is no need to install any software. Just sign up for I, Librarian Hosted and we will take care of your literature management needs. Sign up and take a sip of your coffee, as you are watching your PDF library grow in front of you. Whether you have just a few, or hundreds of users, whether you own a hundred, or tens of thousands of papers, I, Librarian is for you. Check out more features of our software below.
Search for words or phrases in references, PDF files, PDF annotations, and rich-text notes. It takes less than a second to search through >10,000 records. Searching is diacritics neutral. So, a search for "São Paulo" will find records that contain "Sao Paulo" and vice versa. You can even search PDFs from scanned images. I, Librarian will use OCR to extract the text from such files.
Use a blue marker to highlight important text. Attach pinned notes anywhere to remember what you thought when you were reading the paper. You can see your colleagues' annotations too. All annotations can be exported with a PDF file for printing or for dissemination to people who don't use I, Librarian.
Import PDFs from your hard drive or from the web. Metadata for PDFs are downloaded seamlessly from the Web. You can batch import all your PDF collection.
Keep rich-text notes with text highlighting, tables and images. Images that are attached to the paper can be automatically added to the notes. MathML is also supported for the ability to write complicated chemical or mathematical formulas.
There is too many cool features to list them all. We did not even mention collaborative projects, assigning papers to custom categories, advanced supplementary file management, or the fact that you can export any number of items into your favorite citation manager.
