Actually, I don't like to use Scrivener for my bibliography. For one, I have to conform to too many different reference formats, and scrivener just isn't made for this. Moreover, I've got too many articles, books and other literature that I need to keep track of, and again, that is not Scrivener's cup-o-tea now is it? So I decided to manage my bibliography in one of those other applications the reason of their existence is just that, managing bibliographies.

Up to this point I've been a Scrivener hacker.  I have wasted time going to outside applications armed only with my memory and and a Hope For The Best strategy.  Your use of meta-data (vaguely remember that from the tutorial that came with the software) makes me want to (ugh am I saying this) sign up for a class.  I never think I have time for that, but how much time am I wasting by hacking through my projects rather than learning how to captain the ship that Scrivener is.  OK...you are making a great point with me.

Great post. I'm looking forward to the class, even though I don't write nonfiction. Every writer needs to know how to keep a bibliography of research. Also, thanks for using "kvetching" in a sentence
