I wanted to take a minute and highlight a new feature in BibleWorks 8 called ERMIE: External Resources Manager. Here’s the description from the BibleWorks 8 brochure:
Over time, you’ve probably collected a number of useful books, references, and documents in vaious formats (PDF, HTML, word processing formats, etc.). Add to that the myriad websites with all sorts of materials and courses your find useful in your studies. With ERMIE, you can collect and organize these local and online resources into an easy to browse catalog. ERMIE catalog files can be edited and shared with other users.
Out of the box, ERMIE comes with a large number of links to web-based materials already loaded. I highly recommend taking a few minutes to browse through the preloaded material and then add your own. I have a large number of web-based resources stored in favorites, text files, etc. I’ll be adding them all to ERMIE, which will definitely make them easier to find when I need them. In case you haven’t figured out how to launch ERMIE yet, here are a few screenshots to help you get started.
1. Launch BibleWorks 8
2. Click on the globe icon to start ERMIE.
ERMIE is organized like a traditional file tree. The resource folders are on the left-hand side of the window. Once you browse down to the a folder level containing resources, the resource links will show up in the right-hand side of the window. If you double-click on a resource, it will load in a basic viewer/web browser at the bottom of the screen.
You can use the Add, Edit, and remove buttons to modify the folders and resources. The More… button opens a submenu with options to create, open, import, and save ERMIE catalog files. To learn more about this and other features in BibleWorks 8, be sure to visit www.bibleworks.com.
