The Library Catalog does include a feature to export any citation for an item in BibTeX format, but at this time the data provided is not clean enough for many applications to successfully import as BibTeX.  Testing with the JabRef citation management program (www.jabref.org) does successfully import the Library Catalog .bib file, but that is probably because of JabRef's particular ability to rehabilitate dirty data.

The provider of the Library Catalog software is working on a clean BibTeX export that should work universally. We will update this FAQ entry accordingly when that feature is available.
