Google scholar adds citation management

Thanks to Clarke who pointed out in a comment on a recent post here, that Google Scholar now has a “saved citations” citation management feature.

I haven’t done any experimenting with it; anyone have a review? What do you think, is this going to end up drawing a significant portion of our patron’s use away from other citation management alternatives (including some we pay for)?

Google Scholar Library. 

Today we’re launching Scholar Library, your personal collection of articles in Scholar. You can save articles right from the search page, organize them by topic, and use the power of Scholar’s full-text search & ranking to quickly find just the one you want – at any time and from anywhere. You decide what goes into your library and we’ll provide all the goodies that come with Scholar search results – up to date article links, citing articles, related articles, formatted citations, links to your university’s subscriptions, and more. And if you have a public Scholar profile, it’s easy to quickly set up your library with the articles you want – with a single click, you can import all the articles in your profile as well as all the articles they cite.
