Break Glass for Emergency Librarian

CiteULike How come there's never a librarian around when you need one? Like the four or five times a month I get asked by some drongo to provide the same data time and time again for the REF?

Wouldn't it be great if we could just pull a formatted list of our own publications from CiteULike and fend off the timewasters? Sounds easy doesn't it, and CiteULike provides instructions which I think are aimed at doing this, but I can't make them work.

This would be a great selling point for CiteULike among academics!
