Version 9.4 (December 10, 2013) of the E-Government Reference Library (EGRL) has been made available for download in a ZIP file containing editions in BibTeX, RIS, EndNoteTM XML, a full packaged EndNoteTM lib, as well as PDF, RTF, and txt formats.
EGRL Version 9.4 now contains 6,148 references of predominantly English language, peer-reviewed work. However, we have not been able to include references to ECIS 2013, ICEGOV 2013, MeTTeG 2013, and ICEG 2013 conference proceedings among others, since those were either not published at the time we were preparing this release, or we did not have access to the proceedings yet. We hope to be able to include these 2013 records in a minor update (9.5) soon.
The number of qualifying references in the library has increased by 319, or 5.5 % over version 9.0 (June 15, 2013) and by 10.9 % over version 8.5 (December 14, 2012). This year 2013 has been another record year for e-Government-related publishing. We can repeat what we stated earlier: The EGRL has developed into an indispensable tool for e-Gov scholars. In particular, preparing and reviewing paper submissions was reported to now heavily rely on this reference library.
In order to download the library, please register (or re-register, for repeat downloads) yourself and accept the GPL license agreement. As stated above we provide the references in various editions (BibTeX, RIS, EndNote, PDF, and RTF). Mendeley and Zotero versions can be created based on these files.

Please check the library for inclusion of your own publications. We generally also include chapters of edited books. However, before you send us an inclusion request, please check your publication against the inclusion criteria. Thank you.
