Adding a complete bibliography to the computer science bibliography collection

Contributing to the bibliography collection is very easy if your bibliography is in a standard format and available via an FTP or WWW server. You need not install any special software or worry about updates, all that is handled by my scripts. If you have a bibliography which you would like to contribute to the bibliography collection, then please read the following.

A local copy will be automatically kept up-to-date by mirroring your bibliography and will be searchable by the various search engines for the bibliography.
