I'm using Papyrus, a $99 bibliographic system I _really_ like (as
a bibliographic system) for slide catalog, too. It can search on
keywords, subjects, etc. As a plant taxonomist, I mainly want to
search by family or genus; occasionally by location.
Anyhow, I'm using the author field for locality (in the format
Country:State:Local name), subject matter in the title field,
and putting family, genus, and some other common things I want to
look for in the keyword fields. Papyrus has a comments field, too,
so I stick misc. stuff in that.
Nope, no interest in the company. Got the initial info from a review
in _Taxon_. Research Design Software 2718 SW Kelly St, Portland, OR
97201 (503) 796-1368. Available in VAX, Mac or IBM-oid versions.
