I have spent probably 20+ hours over the last three days correcting, checking, finding AOL, and formatting bibliographic and interview entries for my 300+ page book manuscript. Talk about tedious.

I don't know what it says about me, but Endnote is almost too organized for me. I use it to keep notes (and even then in a scattershot manner) but not for generating bibliographies. I write book bibliographies as I go, and I'm often adding things that I don't even put into Endnote. For me this works out OK, though my main problem is forgetting to add entries, which I then have to do at the copy-editing stage.

Yours has been my approach so far...but tracking down obscure references to primary documents from the 1950s or Mexican journal articles from the 1970s has made me batty. I would either need to be much more organized and consistent in entering things into a master Word bibliography as I go, or entering them into EndNote. Either way, I need to seriously revisit my work habits once this baby is in the mail...which will probably be tomorrow. YAY!!!!!
