BAMBOO DiRT - a Directory of Research Tools

Although the name is unusual, this is a very useful listing if you need electronic tools to conduct your research -

"Bamboo DiRT is a registry of digital research tools for scholarly use. Developed by Project Bamboo, Bamboo DiRT makes it easy for digital humanists and others conducting digital research to find and compare resources ranging from content management systems to music OCR, statistical analysis packages to mindmapping software."

Just out of curiosity, 'Whittaker' checked out the listings of bibliographic software and was amazed how much was there.  (Yes, Mendeley was amongst them, so Karen's world can keep turning ... )

If your research involves any of these activities, it looks as though BAMBOO DiRT is a link worth saving!
