Document Archive provides is a Web-based BibTeX archive.

Document Archive is a Web-based database to help you keep track of the vast amount of electronic documents and BibTeX entries you might have in use.

Browser plugins and console frontends allow fast access with typical tools.

The underlying database is MySQL (because it's addressed through Perl's DBI, it might work with others as well).

Here are some key features of "Document Archive":

widely configurable
charset recode (bibtex, html, rdf)
tree structure for content classification
multiuser containers may be used to group project oriented documents
public runmode allows readonly access to allowed documents for anyone without authorization
fully themeable
traditional (standard) theme
fully css-configurable per central stylesheet for nearly every class of elements
user customizable (some options that influence the handling)
strictly xml conform (uses doctype xhtml 1.0 transitional)
optimized for mozilla, but also runs under recent versions of other browsers. it's not planned to support obsolete browser versions because i'd like to concentrate on standards like xml, css and dom.
simple layout that returns special pages for your internal search engine (eg. htdig)
dynamic online help
fields/doctypes structures and categories configurable via web interface
command line interface (cli) for simple access during latex document compiling
internal database search lets you specify complex search expressions
fulltext search through document files available via integrated ht://dig support
modular extensible. available extensions:
frame and iframe based extensions of the traditional theme
planned: scan2pdf interface (tiff/bmp/png/jpeg -> pdf)
planned: content extraction (just have to upload a pdf file, database extracts the necessary content)
planned: printing and format conversion capabilities (ghostscript, xpdf, lpr, psutils)
planned: email support (send registered users bibtex entries or document files)
planned: documentation of template interface
planned: little integration into some famous editors (eg. vi, emacs, kile)
planned: more browser integration (eg. internet explorer, opera, konqueror)
mozilla/firefox integration (plugin and search engine)
direct access to documents via toolbar
select html embedded bibtex and post it directly to docarc via context menu
let docarc parse the currently viewed web-page (many famous e-journals are supported)
query document archive from sidebar or url input field

What's New in This Release:

arxiv layout has changed. a set of all current input filters can be downloaded here. replace the file and the directory parse_bibtex in your cgi-bin/modules directory.
new input filters for Institute of Physics journals, Science Direct journals and PubMed
new document type problemset for publishing exercise sheets to your students
a new prx input filter has been written to compensate for changes in prl/pra/... layout. download here and replace the old one in the modules/parse_bibtex directory
completely rewritten almost everything. new features are
multiple files can be attached to a bibtex entry
document type of existing entries can be altered
speed improvement
pagewise browsing through category view of search result (ie. offset and limit are working)
more comfortable edit the doctypes/fields structure
user space metadata can be attached to any document (comments, private bibtexids or categories)
speeded up search a little by optimizing sql queries
introduced cli command upload to put a document file for a specified document into the database (eg. for use in makefiles to update your document entry)
1x1 document description fields are now represented by two radio buttons rather than a checkbox
Content-Disposition header ensures correct filenames when downloading documents
some pages now have HTTP Last-modified header so ht://Dig does not need to parse unchanged documents
fixed database and style bugs and standards conformance
after new entry submission user will be redirected to the corresponding entry view (in case he wants to add it to categories or file any meta-data)
