Sente Review: Bibliographic software for the Mac & iPad 29

This is a repost from January 14, 2011. I had thought about doing a new post, but it is still relevant and came up in my conversation with our new Tombros Librarian Chuck Jones and CLA associate dean Christopher Long. I still find Sente to be most useful for me and their new Sync2 has […]
