Little student-nerd-gasm: Google Scholar does BibTex references!

This probably means nothing to most people, but I have to write a report in a tool called LaTeX, and I can do references/bibliographies with BibTex. So, if I find a cool paper via google scholar, I can now get a reference that I can plug in, and if I need to change the style of the references, I just change how that file is read, rather than changing everything by hand.

It's a mildly cool system.

Google scholar is bloody amazing.

This probably doesn't matter to you in the slightest, but it also links all relevant citations to a catalogue of print holdings in the Cambridge Univertsity Library, and any ejournal resources that can be gained on the Cambridge server.

I assume this is a pilot scheme soon to be implemented for use in other universities as well.
